Kids attempt to break jumping jacks record

Some 600 students at John Adams Academy in Roseville did a minute worth of jumping jacks today as part of a coordinated attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people doing the exercise in a 24-hour period. To break the record, more than 20,000 people worldwide need to complete one minute of jumping jacks between 3 p.m. Oct. 11 and 3 p.m. today.

The attempt was organized in support of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, which encourages kids and families to be active and healthy. Obama kicked off the event on the White House front lawn.
