An essential part of building healthy relationships, families, and communities is through BUILDING OUR HEALTH. We love how First Lady Michelle Obama has committed herself to raising the nation’s awareness of health and wellness through exercise and eating right.
She hopes to break the title for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period and in doing so land in the Guinness World Records book.
The first lady will lead hundreds of local children in doing one minute of jumping jacks on the South Lawn on Tuesday.
National Geographic Kids is leading the effort to break the record. The event will be reviewed by an official from Guinness World Records and will signal the beginning of a 24-hour challenge.
To break the record:
More than 20,000 people around the world will need to do jumping jacks for a minute.
The exact record to break is 20,425 jumpers, set on March 22, 2011.
