    Here is an opportunity to support our local hospital. If you are available, willing and able all the relevant details are below. Thanks.

    JBH Foundation Guinness World Records Day on October 2

    JBHF logo

    The Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation is attempting to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDSĀ® title for the Largest Human Letter by forming a giant J in Spencer Smith Park. 

    Bring your friends, family and co-workers and be a part of history!

    Plan to arrive at Spencer Smith Park at 12 noon for on-site registration but be sure to register online to beat the line!

    This event is free.


    Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

    Please contact the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation at or 905-336-6499 with any questions. 

    Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

    To accurately measure the number of participants for the world record attempt, we will be scanning digital or printed tickets at the event and ask you to please bring your printed ticket or an electronic ticket on your smartphone.

    What should I expect as part of the day?

    Upon arrival, everyone will check in and receive a rain poncho to be identifiable as a participant and be assigned to a numbered section. Participants will be asked to enter the formation upon arrival, and will remain there until the record attempt is complete and verified by the Guinness World Records judge on site. Water and snacks will be provided, and there will be live entertainment throughout the day including a DJ and emcee on stage to keep participants informed.

    How many people are required to break the Guinness World Records?

    The current record is held by Dell Computers, who formed the slanted E in their logo with 2,166 people. We require 2,167 people to break the record. For the safety of all participants, the first 3,000 people to register at Spencer Smith Park will be permitted to be a part of the Guinness World Records Official Attempt.
