Mayor James Maley and Commissioners Joan Leonard and Mike Hall did jumping jacks outside The Pop Shop Wednesday at 11 a.m. to help the country break a Guinness Book of World Record title for most jumping jacks done in a 24-hour period.
The jumping jack challenge was part two of The Pop Shop's doubles-session fitness incentive, spurred by First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign.
The Pop Shop paired with National Geographic Kids magazine in hosting a daylong contest to break Guinness Book of World Record's title for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period.
A national affair, it's reported that to break the current record, more than 20,000 people around the country must perform jumping jacks for one minute between the hours of 3 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, Oct. 11, and 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 12.
Eleven children jumped Tuesday at 4:30 p.m., and the commissioners' jump rounded-out the event.
Commissioner Mike Hall and Frugal Resale owner Morgan Robinson jumped in a second session Wednesday, after Maley, Leonard, Collingswood Communications Director Cass Duffey and The Pop Shop employees finished their set.
