Way to go jumpers! With your help, National Geographic Kids has broken the Guinness World Record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period! Between 3 p.m. on October 11 and 3 p.m. on October 12, 300,265 jumpers all over the world took part in the event--far surpassing the existing record of 20,425! Watch a special video from Michelle Obama.
To kick off the event, we joined First Lady and "Jumper in Chief" Michelle Obama and 464 Washington-area kids in one minute of continuous jumping jacks on the White House lawn. Check us out!
This is National Geographic Kids' 5th Guinness World Record. Hooray for us! Stay tuned for our next Guinness World Records attempt!
