Kiwanis Club of the Central Adirondacks

And One Square Mile of Hope

To Partner on 2014 Guinness World Record Event

 On November 20, 2013 it was announced that the Suttons Bay Flotilla in Michigan had set a new Guinness world record for the “Largest Raft of canoes and kayaks” at 2099 with its attempt this past August, breaking the record of 1902 set in Inlet, NY in 2011.  We are pleased to announce that the Kiwanis Club of the Central Adirondacks and the One Square Mile of Hope 2014 committee have formed a strategic partnership with the goal of retaking the record while again raising funds to help with breast cancer research and awareness.

For the 2014 event, the primary recipient of funds raised will be The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  The mission of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health. Currently, 91 cents of every dollar spent by BCRF is directed towards breast cancer research and awareness programs.

On September 13th,  2014 One Square Mile of Hope and Kiwanis will attempt to regain their place in the Guinness Book of World Records.   The goals are simple: beat the record and regain our title as World Record Holder, at the same time raising funds for a great cause.
