Have you ever broken a world record?

Be Part of Breaking a World Record

On Saturday, June 5th, 2010 (raindate June 12th, 2010) at 11:00 am in the parking lot of Calvary Baptist Church on Route 9 in Ocean View, NJ, be a part of breaking the world record for attempting to yo-yo for 2 minutes. Yo-yos will be provided. No experience is required and there are no minimum age restrictions.

The purpose of the event is two-fold. The 1st goal is to break the world record which currently stands at 536 people simultaneously attempting to yo-yo for 2 minutes. The 2nd goal is to raise money for a mission trip to Guatemala in July which will involve 10 local residents of Cape May County. The money raised from the event will be used solely for building a home for an indigent family, providing wheelchairs to physically challenged children and adults who have no means of locomotion, and for feeding hungry families who have little to no way of supporting themselves financially.

The 10 individuals who will be traveling to Guatemala have been preparing for their trip by performing community service activities throughout the county.

The cost to participate is only $5 per person. Festivities include live music by Ray Seemans and The Prisoners of Love, food (BBQ), beverages, crafts, bake sale, moonbounce, facepainting, and more. Vendors wanted. Advance registration is encouraged, but not required. To register in advance or for more information, please email
