Evan Wollman, 19, of Edgewater, Md. set the Guinness World Record for most distance traveled on a personal watercraft, riding for more than six hours and 231 nautical miles on a Jet Ski. The local teen took on the challenge to raise money for the research of Kimmel Cancer Center prostate cancer expert Mario Eisenberger. Wollman’s father died last year of prostate cancer.
