Pedal For Hope Peterborough achieves Guinness World Record in support of the Canadian Cancer Society

On Saturday, May 16, 2015, 267 participants had their heads shaved simultaneously at the Peterborough Airport for Pedal For Hope Peterborough — achieving the Guinness World Record in head shaving.

The achievement breaks the previous record of 210 people in Ohio.

Amanda Mochan, adjudicator with Guinness World Records in New York City, attended the world record attempt and certified the achievement.

The Pedal For Hope team wrapped up its 2015 tour by riding into the Loomex Building at the Peterborough Airport on Saturday at noon, where they joined members of the community in the world record attempt.

The head-shaving event was in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. Money raised from the event will help fund leading-edge cancer research, information, advocacy, and community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families.

You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice.

Pedal for Hope helps children with cancer know that they are not alone in their fight.


Pedal For Hope is a three week cycling tour delivering a message about kids living with cancer and supporting Pediatric Cancer Research.

In 2005, the Peterborough Chapter of Cops for Cancer took on a new identity. The Pedal for Hope Cycling Team was born and local children fighting cancer had a new support team behind them! Local police personnel, a retired N.H.L. hockey player and a great crew of support personnel have been dedicating time to this worthy cause. Starting in late April, the Pedal for Hope team cycles throughout Central Ontario visiting approximately 50 local schools delivering a message about kids living with cancer and raises funds for pediatric cancer research. As of now, Pedal for Hope has raised over $4 million dollars for pediatric cancer research.



As long as there are kids with cancer, none of us can truly rest. Change a child’s life today by
