      If you want to let it all hang out while helping to save one of Vancouver's most famous beaches while setting a new world record, check out this upcoming event.

      The Wreck Beach Preservation Society is staging an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest skinny-dipping event at its forthcoming fundraiser.

      The last record was set by an all-female event held in Wicklow, Ireland, on June 9, 2018 in which 2,505 women attended to raise awareness about breast cancer.

      The naturist and nudist event will be held at 4 p.m. on Sunday (July 22) near the end of Wreck Beach trail 6.

      Participants are required to register (for free) with volunteers prior to the photo shoot. Registration begins at 9 a.m.

      Genex Capital CEO Roger Proctor and an anonymous donor have each promised to donate $5 ($10 each) for each naked person in the water to the Wreck Beach Preservation Society, which is dedicated to the protection of the Wreck Beach environment.

      If you're unable to attend this event, keep in mind that there's also the upcoming 38th annual Wreck Beach Day to be held on August 25, starting at 9 a.m.

      This daylong celebration will include activities such as kite-flying, sandcastle-building, a volleyball tournament, family portraits, and a hula hoop competition.
