Boys & Girls Club Set Guinness Record

Supported by founding sponsor Coca-Cola and the WellPoint Foundation, dozens of kids from the Boys & Girls Clubs at Admiral Oaks in Annapolis took part in a nationwide attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Star Jumps (Jumping Jacks) on March 22 through the Club’s premier health and wellness program, Triple Play. Five local Clubs participated in the World Record Attempt from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County.

On March 22, more than 100 members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County joined their peers from more than 1,000 Boys & Girls Clubs across the country to break the Guinness World Record for the most people doing “jumping jacks” – or “star jumps.” As part of National Boys & Girls Club Week (March 20-26), Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) embarked on this initiative with its Clubs across the country through the organization’s Triple Play program. This program, supported by founding sponsor, Coca-Cola, and the WellPoint Foundation, encourages kids to eat healthier, become more physically active and increase their ability to engage in healthy relationships. To break the current record, more than 278 kids needed to complete the attempt. While the official verdict will come from Guinness in a couple of weeks, all indications are that the record has been broken.
