Woodbury joined First Lady Michelle Obama in her efforts to break Guinness World Record Wednesday.

After she did jumping jacks with 400 children on the South Lawn of the White House for a straight minute Tuesday, Woodbury did the same thing Wednesday at Woodwinds Health Campus.

The goal was to break Guinness World Record for the most people doing jumping jacks for one minute, in a 24-hour period.

In Woodbuy, 66 people helped contribute to the goal of 20,000. Hospital staff, city employees and others from the community participated.

The event was held to encourage more people to exercise as part of Michelle Obama's fighting obesity campaign.
