On 25 June 2009, Pronósticos para la Asistencia
Pública (Mexico) set a new Guinness World Records™ total for the most people on space
hoppers at the Campus Tlalpan of the Universidad del Valle de México, in Mexico City,
Mexico. An incredible 1,257 participants took part in this bouncing bonanza.
Guinness World Records Adjudicator Carlos Martínez was on site to certify this feat,
in which the participants hopped for one minute simultaneously.
Pronósticos para la Asistencia Pública wanted to use the action of hopping as a
metaphor for Mexican hearts beating simultaneously and driving Mexico towards
better health, education and nutrition through its assistance programmes.
Now to make plans to recover our world record back to the UK...
