Breaking a world record for Childhood Cancer Awareness


Inspired by a life cut short but lived to the fullest. Ethan was a child I never met in person although I know his aunt and his grandmother and his daddy. Once he was diagnosis and his family was asking for prayers my town embraced the prayer challenge and followed Ethan's journey until the end.  

Now I am hopeful that our town not only meets this challenge, but blows it out of the water in a way to honor Ethan's short life. 

Guinness World Book of Records will be there to see if we reach our goal. Let's turn out Lake Sinclair?  If you check out that link you will find more information about the event.  There is also a lot of various pick up points for people.  The event is free and the recording holding ribbon event will take place at 3:30.  

We need your help breaking a Guinness World Record for the largest Childhood Cancer Awareness Ribbon! We will gather on the football field and hold up pages to create a giant mosaic picture of a gold ribbon. We need 4,201 people to break the world record! 

This is a free event! There will be food, music, free prizes, raffles and fun for the whole family!

Updates on parking/riding instructions and other news will be given as the event approaches.

Tammy, I hope Lake Sinclair breaks the record for Ethan.  A few years ago, we had the longest pink scarf for cancer. I forget how long it was. I need to go back and check this out.

Tammy Lankford, Ethan is watching down from above to see everyone break the record!
