Over 400 children, parents and teachers jumped for one minute at La Jolla Elementary on October 12th, as part of a global effort to break the Guinness World Record for most people doing jumping jacks.
The event was part of a 24-hour challenge that kicked off the day before when First Lady Michelle Obama started a jumping session at the White House in conjunction with National Geographic Kids, the Let's Jump! Obama's "Let's Move" campaign seeks to get American kids eating healthier and increasing their physical activity.
LJES physical education coach Kelly Wiskus organized the jumping at LJES and had a team of volunteers taking photos and video as documentation for National Geographic. In all more than 20,425 people had ‘perform’ for one minute each to break the record.
