Raytown, Mo. - This weekend, the Raytown School District will go for a Guinness World Record.
The district will try to set the record for the most people in a school district doing a dance at the same time.
It is part of the First Lady's "Let's Move" initiative.
Organizers said it's vital to teach kids as early as possible about a health lifestyle.
"We're getting kids to become aware there is a crisis in the united states of childhood obesity. And if we can get them between the first and fifth grade level, it's much easier to make them aware of how to change their lifestyle than in the latter," said Jann Wynn, the Missouri and Kansas Director of Let's Move.
The Raytown fire chief, police chief and mayor are expected to participate.
