Fitness Enthusiasts Attempt World Record

Updated:
CARL JUNCTION, MISSOURI - 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
