Mayor James Maley and Commissioners Joan Leonard and Mike Hall did jumping jacks outside 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  owner Morgan Robinson jumped in a second session Wednesday, after Maley, Leonard, Collingswood Communications Director Cass Duffey and employees finished their set.
