Attorney General Reyes Supports Utah Charity
Camp Kostopulos on Guinness World Record Attempt
12 Cities, 24 Hours, and One Good Cause
SALT LAKE CITY – Dec. 1, 2015 – Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes will support Utah’s Camp Kostopulos and partner ABC 4 Utah today in their Guinness World Record title attempt for “Most Live Concerts in 24 Hours (multiple cities)” done to raise funds for Camp Kostopulos and awareness for people with special needs. General Reyes will attend multiple Utah concerts in the series today.
“Camp K and its partners are using this record breaking opportunity not for personal recognition, but to raise awareness of the many families and children fighting to overcome challenges presented by their disabilities,” said Attorney General Reyes. “The positive attitude of these children and their families is inspirational. I congratulate Camp K on this monumental attempt, which is a reminder for us all to take action and give back to our communities.”
To meet the Guinness World Records criteria, Camp K will host a concert in 12 different cities, at 12 different venues in 24 hours to benefit the Kostopolus Dream Foundation. ABC 4 Utah has been chronicling the lead up and will cover the event. A bus and helicopter will be employed to transport the team in order to challenge the record.
The concert series began last night, Nov. 30, 2015, in San Diego at 9p.m., and ends tonight in Salt Lake City, with concert stops also in St. George, Cedar City, Provo, Tooele, Logan, and Ogden, Utah. Attorney General Reyes will attend multiple concerts including the final concert, which will be held at the Grand Theatre at Salt Lake Community College at 9 p.m. (MST).
Attorney General Reyes has shown ongoing support for Camp Kostopolus. Most recently, on Sept. 10, 2015, he met with families impacted by Prader Willi Syndrome as they took part in therapeutic recreation at the camp. On that same day, approximately 150 employees of the LDS church were on sight completing Camp K improvement projects.
Camp K is a charity that works to improve the lives of children and adults with disabilities by providing therapeutic recreation, education and growth experiences to those it serves. For more information please visit https://www.campk.org/
