Defeat Melanoma on the Today Show almost made the Guinness World Record!

Thanks to NBC, the Today Show and all those who came out in New York City on Melanoma Monday on May 7 when we tried to set the record for most people putting on sunscreen simultaneously!

The record to beat was 1,822 people — and that record still stands. The TODAY plaza didn’t quite beat it, according to Guinness adjudicator Alex Angert.

“But we had a packed plaza of people that have learned in a fun the importance of putting on sunscreen,” he pointed out, while also presenting a plaque acknowledging the record for “Largest Today Show crowd to support a good cause.”

P.S. We have told Guinness World Records that we’ll be back!
