Fitness Enthusiasts Attempt World Record
Fitness enthusiasts in 11 countries, an estimated 10-thousand participants, attempted the largest simultaneous group workout today at noon.
Roughly 50 participated at the Carl Junction Intermediate School — doing yoga, Zumba, and other activities.
But the event wasn’t just about fitness.
Every participant triggered a 30-meal donation to children’s charities — which includes 6 different area groups.
Organizers say the meals are meant to promote nutrition, while the workout itself is to push people towards a more active lifestyle.
Officials say there were about 10 different locations in the four states that participated — including workouts in Joplin and Carthage.
Local recipients for kids meals here include:
Joplin Family Y
Joplin Boys and Girls Club
Carthage Crisis Center
Oswego Food Bank
Watered Gardens and the
Carl Junction Backpack Program
