The Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario-Windsor invited Windsorites to the “Fit For Heart” Jumping Jack Guinness World Record Attempt challenge at Caesars Windsor on Sunday, September 14, 2014. The current world record for the most people doing jumping jacks at the same time is 1254. Windsor Essex residents of all ages joined the fun at the Augustus Ballroom inside Caesars Windsor despite failing to break the current world record.

“Although we did not beat the record, it was a ground-breaking event for the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Windsor-Essex,” said Rochelle Stachurski, Area Manager of The Heart and Stroke Foundation. The Fit for Heart at Caesars event drew in 192 participants who left with very pleased with the overall event/event day experience. They participated in different classes that day including Zumba with Joel, and Boxercise from Xanadu.

The event would not be successful without the support of Heart and Stroke volunteers and supporters:
