Local Boys And Girls Club Members Jump For Club Effort

BoysgirlsclubThey jumped…and jumped…and jumped – nonstop for two consecutive minutes. In doing so, members of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley have officially broken the Guinness World Record for Star Jumps (Jumping Jacks).

The news comes after months of anticipation since the record-breaking attempt occurred on March 22, 2011 as part of a nationwide effort by Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) to have the most people doing Star Jumps in multiple venues simultaneously for two minutes. (This effort is not related to the recent event sponsored by National Geographic Kids Magazine and the “Let’s Move” program led by First Lady Michelle Obama. That event was an attempt to break the Guiness World Book record of most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period).

The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley contributed 90 jumpers to the official multi-venue total of 20,425 at 362 locations. BGCA embarked on this initiative with its Clubs across the country and on U.S. military bases overseas through the organization’s Triple Play program.

This program, supported by founding sponsor Coca-Cola and the WellPoint Foundation, encourages kids to eat a balanced diet, become more physically active and increase their ability to engage in healthy relationships.

“Young people living healthy, active lifestyles are on a pathway to a great future,” said Jim Ventress, chief professional officer of the local Club.  “We are proud that our members faced the jumping jack challenge and came out record breakers!”
