Jeremy and Jason Julio, twins from Oceanport, and co-owners of Last Bite Mosquito and Tick Control, came up with the idea to raise money for a charity close to their hearts. LymeLight Foundation is a nonprofit which provides grants to eligible children and young adults suffering from lyme disease. The past few years the Julio brothers have come up with some very physically challenging fundraisers.
However, the morning of day 3, they realized the seat did not fit their boat. “We scrambled to find the right tools and adjusted the seat to fit our boat,” said Jason. As they pushed off the beach, they went directly into the same type swell that flipped them the night before. “After being we went through a large set of waves that spun the boat and we fell out.” Johnathan scrambled to get back in the boat, while Jason pointed him in the right direction and he pulled the boat over a set of five large waves. “I was stuck in the middle of the surf holding our space oar and only seat, duck diving and swimming through the break. They finally made it back to the boat, loaded up and off they went. “Have to say, my brother and Majeski had a much easier transition.”
So, at the conclusion of day three, they traveled a total of 136 miles in 32 hours and 27 minutes. They had 48,000 strokes and burned an incredible 27,000 calories. A normal person burns roughly 12-1500 calories daily doing nothing. A 30-minute jog at five mph burns around 300 calories.
