Yesterday, something special happened. People around the world joined together towards the same goal: to set a Guinness World Record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period. The challenge was to have more than 20,000 people from around the world do jumping jacks for one minute.

Joined by National Geographic Kids Magazine, First Lady Michelle Obama had the chance to launch the effort to break the record from the South Lawn of the White House
:

I get to do a lot of cool things, but this is really exciting. I never thought in my entire life that I would be here today to break a Guinness World Record. Woohoo! And Im here doing it with all of you and that makes it even more fun, because the whole country -- the world is going to see just how much fun we can have not just breaking a world record but also doing some exercise, right? Because thats one of my big things. Lets Move is about kids eating healthy and moving and staying active, so you all are ready for life and for all the challenges that youre going to face.

And what were going to show people today is that moving is fun, right? You can do it just dancing around in your backyard. You can get moving if youre walking your dog. Or you can get moving doing some jumping jacks, right? There are so many ways to keep moving.
