Want to Help Set a World Record? Come do Jumping Jacks!
We see this all the time, people, groups, trying to set s world record for this or that, some more wacky than others.
So, this attempt happening on Saturday, October 8 at LMCU Ballpark, home of the West Michigan Whitecaps, may seem a bit wacky, but it has a lot of heart and caring in it.
The Big Give group has announced that they are going to try to break a Guinness World Record. What is that record they want to break? The event will try to break the record of having the largest group of people ever assembled do JUMPING JACKS!
Wacky, huh? Well, it certainly is creative, but The Big Give group has a lot of heart, and they are using the event to hopefully raise a lot of money, $250,000 to be exact. And, they will be using that money to help kids in the community.
The Big Give group works towards providing school supplies and gifts to local youth at Christmas, and the $250,000 will help 1,000 local kids. That's the kind of heart they have.
This event is free to attend, but they are hoping everyone attending will donate to reach their goal.
Although the "record breaking" event is free to attend, donations are asked to support The Big Give. And, it's going to be a super-fun event with a boot camp-style workout, games, inflatables, dunk tanks, food, and drinks. Come on, it will be a party!
The Big Give people say it's hope they are delivering because when they deliver the gifts to the kids over Christmas, the kids and families in need realize there is love and hope in our community.
Dont' forget, the Big Give’s event is at LMCU Ballpark, Saturday, October 8, with gates opening at 9:45 a.m. and the Jumping Jack record attempt at 11 a.m.
LOOK: See what Christmas was like the year you were born
