iHeartMedia/Panama City, FL's Jake "Paco" Navarro -- who serves as Program Director and an air personality for 96 Rock -- will attempt to beat the current Guinness World Record for the longest marathon on a fairground/theme park attraction on Wednesday, June 12 at 11am through Friday, June 14 at 4pm. Paco will have to be on Panama City Beach's newest attraction, SkyWheel, for longer than 52 hours and 3 minutes, which is the current world record.

Guests will have the opportunity to ride one-on-one with Paco for a minimum $25 donation. Proceeds will benefit Gulf Coast Children's Advocacy Center, which provides refuge to victims of child abuse and sexual violence and their families. In addition, SkyWheel will donate a portion of ticket sales to Gulf Coast Children's Advocacy Center, as well as victims of Hurricane Michael.

"Local radio stunts make this business great," said Paco. "I look forward to providing support and a much-needed distraction to our community while trying to break a world record in the process."

Skypro Studios, a full-service production company, will document the attempt as required by Guinness World Records. Paco will attempt to go a record of 53 hours.
