Several local athletes joined to break six records from the Guinness book as part of a fundraiser to benefit the Patterson Family Trust.

Meagen Patterson died Nov. 24 in a car accident, leaving her husband and three children. They were seriously injured in the crash; her daughter Olivia was paralyzed from the waist down. The trust was established to cover the needs of the children, including their living expenses and uncovered medical expenses.


Those at the event included (above, from left) Guinness world records adjudicator Michael Empric and athletes David Bourdon, Bob Natoli and Bobby Natoli.

Bourdon completed 42 pull-ups in a minute. The record had been 41.

Bob Natoli completed 41 step-ups in a minute carrying an 80-pound pack, the record was 34; completed 38 step-ups in a minute carrying a 100-pound pack, the record was 31; and lifted 4,356 pounds by dumbbell rows in a minute using one arm (left), the record was 3,125 pounds.

Bobby Natoli completed 23 pull-ups in a minute carrying a 40-pound pack (right), the record was 13; and completed 58 knuckle push-ups in a minute, the record was 45.
