- FRANCO SCANGA'S GUINNESS WORLD RECORD UPDATE. The following was an e-mail received by the Club from Franco: "WE did it! Words cannot express how much I appreciated your presence at the Talk For A Cure event! With your help, we set (unofficially) the World record for most speeches in 24 hours by completing 23 speeches in just under 12 hours! Your participation and support played an integral role in achieving the record, but more importantly, together we created more awareness of the importance of cancer research. So far, we have raised an amazing $6,485 and counting! The Talk For A Cure event boosted awareness and pledges keep coming in! I will update you on the final amount raised in the coming weeks. Great to know we were all there for the same goal: to support the Canadian Cancer Society. Simply put- couldn't have done it without you! Thanks so much for taking the journey with me! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Best Regards, Franco Scanga." (updated May 3rd, 2016).
