Be A Superhero in the Fight Against Cancer!


Grim Acres Scare Away Cancer will be trying to set a Guinness World Record this year -- the largest group of superheroes in a single area.

 

Be a Superhero in The Fight Against Cancer will take place in the Manitoba Room at the Keystone Centre on October 1st.

 

Co-curator of the event Brian Sutherland tells CKLQ Westman is known locally for being full of generous people, but he wants the world to know it.

 

"The best way we can do this, is to show the world for one day, for a few hours on October 1st, that we stood up as superheroes in the fight against cancer," said Sutherland.  "What greater cause is there than this?"

 

The people at Guinness will have a list of pre-approved heroes for the record.  Grim Acres will be taking suggestions as to who should be on the list until the end of February.

 

The old record was set by Dreamworks in Los Angeles back in 2010 when 1,580 people dressed up as superheroes to promote the movie Megamind.
