Health-E-tips’ JAM School Program and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation have teamed up for the second annual JAM (Just-A-Minute) World Record. On Thursday, September 26th at 10:00 a.m. millions of kids and adults will be participating to set a new record for the most people taking a one-minute fitness break. JAM World Record was created to promote the importance of everyone being active every day and encourage millions of kids and adults to take “just-a-minute” to get up and get moving.
Registration is now open for the JAM World Record 2013. Individuals and groups are encouraged to sign up and ensure their participation counts toward the record-setting event.
JAM World Record 2013 has a goal to rally 3 million people to participate in this year’s event, more than doubling last year’s inaugural record of just over 1.3 million. So get “JAMming” and sign up to count in the record. For added fun and incentive, JAM Leaders in every state can compete to take this year’s JAM title from West Virginia, which registered nearly 8 percent of its state’s populations in 2012. Colorado…ahem…took second last year and we’re hoping to lead the nation in 2013!
JAM (Just-a-Minute) is a free wellness resource for schools and is designed to teach kids (and adults) healthier lifestyle habits. The highlight of the program is the “JAMmin’ Minute®, a one-minute fitness routine that includes five very simple exercises that kids (or adults) can do while either standing at their desks or sitting in a chair.
People of all ages and abilities can make a difference by participating in the 2013 world record. Mark your calendars for the JAM World Record 2013 on September 26, 2013 at exactly 10:00 your local time.
