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.
