Be Someone’s Angel presented by Spectrum Health Foundation—Ludington Hospital in partnership with West Shore Bank will take place Saturday June 10, 2017 at Stearns Public Beach, with the official start at 1:00 pm. The event will be an official world record attempt, with a Guinness World Record judge on site.

“We want to emphasize that the sand angel record event is open to everyone,” said Yager, “Ludington area residents and visitors alike. The current world record for sand angels is in the hundreds; we want to see literally thousands of people on the beach June 10 making sand angels.”

Kaley Petersen, foundation and community services director said, “All funds stay local and directly benefit our greater community.  Pre-registration is encouraged for the event. In order to effectively organize and coordinate, we anticipate a capacity of 5,000 sand angel participants.”
