Michelle Obama Sets Jumping Jacks World Record, With Some Help
First lady Michelle Obama set out two months ago to shatter the Guinness World Record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period.
Consider that mission accomplished, Mrs. Obama announced yesterday on the Let's Move! website.
Now, thanks to Mrs. Obama and the Let's Move! initiative, the record stands at 300,265 people. Suffice it to say, anyone looking to break that record will need to mobilize quite the force to do so.
"That's 300,000 people who worked together to make history," Mrs. Obama said in the video on the website.
In the video, she stressed that the world record was a great accomplishment, but she's got an even larger goal in mind: ending childhood obesity in a generation, "so that all our kids will grow up healthy and strong."
