Go The Distance for Julia with Tom Cronin and Toby Green

This summer. Shelter Islanders Tom Cronin and Toby Green went after after the Guinness World Record for the longest open water Jet Ski trip - from Shelter Island to Key West. Enduring 5 foot waves, lightning, fatigue and hunger, the pair raised over $30,000 for the Scleroderma Foundation.  Mr. Cronin was inspired to undertake this feat by his young great niece, Julia Ceresnak, who has scleroderma, a disease that results in the hardening of the skin and connective tissue.  The two men will recount their 3,300 mile journey.
