From elsewhere in The Post: Michelle Obama and National Geographic Kids magazine are challenging kids to break the world record for doing the most jumping jacks in 24 hours.

“The idea is to get kids everywhere up and jumping for just one minute sometime between 3 p.m. October 11 and 3 p.m. October 12. More than 20,000 people need to participate to set the record,” reports KidsPost.

Obama will lead a group of local children in doing jumping jacks Oct. 11 at the White House to start the event. Get more details about the exercise challenge at National Geographic’s Web site.
