I am a swimmer who was born and raised on Long Island. My latest swimming adventure is for a cause very close to my heart - the continued recovery of our communities damaged by Hurricane Sandy. As we approach the one year mark of this storm's aftermath, we have made great progress however the rebuilding efforts are ongoing. Diana Nyad, the champion who recently accomplished her heroic swim from Cuba to Florida, will be doing a fundraising 48 HOUR Swim in NYC on Oct 8th - 10th. Your donations here go to the AmeriCares Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund. I will be swimming laps in support alongside Diana on October 10th at 5:55 am. It's never too late to help, so please donate what you can and come cheer us on! Thank you!
