Almost 200 people came together Sunday, throwing their hands up, and their legs stretched out to try and break a world record and promote healthy lifestyles.

The Heart & Stroke foundation drew 192 people to the Caesars Windsor ballroom to try and break the world record for the most jumping jacks in one place but fell short of the goal of 1255 people.

“We’re still looking at this event as a success,” said organizer Rochelle Stachurski. “One-hundred and ninety-two more people are now aware of heart disease and stroke and are trying to make a difference.”

The Heart & Stroke Foundation says more than one in four deaths in Canada are due to heart disease or stroke, and Canadians suffer 50,000 strokes, 70,000 heart attacks and 40,000 cardiac arrests each year.
