As part of its Midday Moves program, the University of Memphis will attempt to break a Guinness World Record on Tuesday, Oct. 29. The Alumni Association, Blue Crew, Student Ambassador Board, Future Alumni of Memphis and Memphis Healthy U are inviting everyone to help break the world record for the number of people to do sit-ups in one location. The world record currently is 250.

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are invited to participate.

Sign-in will begin at 12:15 p.m. on the Alumni Mall. (In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved to the University Center Ballroom). The world record attempt will begin at 12:45 p.m. Participants must do sit-ups for one minute (a minimum of one sit-up).

A complimentary lunch will be provided by Aramark to the first 500 participants.

The event also will include a costume contest; costumes are encouraged but not required.

Midday Moves is an initiative proposed by Interim President Brad Martin to have 15 to 20 minutes of a physical activity each weekday during the lunch hour on the Alumni Mall.

For more information, contact alumni coordinator Jacki Rodriguez at or 678-3119.
