Midday Moves - FAMily Dodgeball Game

Help Us Break a World Guinness Record!
The Alumni Association, Blue Crew, Student Ambassador Board, FAM and Healthy U participated in the "Dying To Be Healthy" Midday Moves event and broke the world record of the number of people to do sit-ups in one location! Participants did sit-ups for one minute (minimum of one sit-up) and enjoyed a “Thriller” dance performance. After the Guinness World Record was broken, Aramark provided a complimentary lunch to the first 500 participants.
Congrats to the FAM for winning 1st place in the non-float category at the 2011 Homecoming Parade! Thanks to everyone who participated!
