Local kids join in to break Guinness World record

Today people all over the world are doing Jumping Jacks hoping to break a Guinness World record.

Twenty-two students in Danielle Coletta's third-grade class at Brookside Elementary School in Yorktown joined in and did jumping jacks for one minute without stopping.

It's all part of an effort sponsored by National Geographic Kids Magazine to create a brand new world record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period.

The event is also part of first lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign to get children to exercise more and fight childhood obesity.
