At 7:40 pm on Oct. 9th, I'll be swimming alongside world record holder phenom Diana Nyad in the middle of Herald Square to benefit Americares -- an organization where 98% of it's proceeds go directly to disaster relief programs.
To mark the one year anniversary, Diana will be swimming 48-straight hours straight (yes, in a pool!). This corresponds with the span when Hurricane Sandy hit NYC and surrounding areas. When I enter the pool, she will have swum 36 hours already.
Please support this terrific organization!
