Let’s Hula Hoop into History: World Record Attempt on August 11

The mere mention of hula hooping brings up nostalgic memories of childhood fun, friendship and joy. Hula hoops make people smile, and more importantly they get us to move. That’s why the good4u grocery chain, Natural Grocers, has decided to celebrate their anniversary with an attempt to beat the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the most people hula hooping at multiple venues simultaneously.

Whether you’ve been hula hooping since you could walk, or are just trying it out for the first time, connecting with the hula hoop community at events like this are a fun and exciting way to get more involved, learn a few tricks from other hoopers, and make new friends – not to mention the fun of competition as we go after a record.

Here’s a little video to get you excited about the event:

The event will take place on August 11 at all of Natural Grocers’ 122 stores. The time will start 4:45 p.m. Mountain (3:45 p.m. Pacific, 5:45 p.m. Central), so you’ll want to get there about 30-45 minutes early to sign in and find a spot. You can find a store near you at naturalgrocers.com. The World Record attempt will be live-streamed on Facebook, but if you can’t make it to a store or there isn’t one near you we’d love to see you live-stream in solidarity with the hula hoop community. Just tag @NaturalGrocers in your stream to show your skills as we hula hoop into history.
