PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Growing up most young men want to follow in the footsteps of their father. Matt Feldman is no different.
"One day he said 'Dad can I go run with you.' I said, 'sure why not.' He was about 11, I think. So we took off and ran about a half a mile and we stopped and rested. Then we ran about another quarter mile and he stopped and rested. Then I said, 'Matt, come on. You're killing me,' " his father Richard recalled.
Like any good athlete Matt remained dedicated.
"He kept doing that and before you knew it a year or two down the road I couldn't even keep up with him," his father said.
Now in college, Matt'sstill running. Only this time, it's for a great cause and with a twist.
His brother taught Matt to juggle and he liked doing that and running but didn't have time for both. So he decided to do them at the same time.
"The arm swing for running fits the three-ball pattern, the speed of the three ball. Over, like four or five years I've decided to go to five balls since the beginning of this year," Matt said.
He broke the Guinness World Record for a 5K while juggling five objects.
He also recently broke the 400 meter record.
"I think a lot of people are going to see it and go for it, just because they know it exists," he said.
Matt's joggling also has a purpose. He has raised $700 to benefit the children of Tanzania.
As for his dad, he's still having a tough time keeping up with his son.
"I can't even catch him now when he's juggling. I have to throw something to maybe knock the balls down and maybe I can catch him," Richard said.
Matt's goal is to eventually raise $5,000 for the kids of Tanzania.
