THE STORY:

Karen Sauvigne wrote -

Nyad#SwimforRelief @ AmeriCares:  Raising money for Sandy recovery by swimming with Diana Nyad; here's why:  I'm a former Masters swimmer, a 'Jersey Girl' whose brother was trapped on a barrier island for weeks by Sandy (he stayed on to do recovery work) & who was on the beach herself – looking at the fallen roller coaster when it was still on the pier - a day before the storm, and an old friend of Diana.  See my post about my own Extreme Dream adventure on Diana's blog site at http://www.diananyad.com/blog/karen-sauvigne

On October 10, I’m going to swim alongside Diana Nyad in a pool set up in Herald Square to raise money for Sandy recovery. Diana will swim 48 hours, I’m in during one of those. Please pledge to help me support NyadSwimforRelief.com and Diana’s effort for the Jersey Shore. Proceeds will go to AmeriCares, a non-profit relief organization that directs 98% of its funds directly to disaster relief.

What a feat! It was impressive to hear how these two days went - and pretty amazing to think of swimming for 48 hours without rest (and in Times Square no less!) Sounds like your efforts were well received. Great job to all that made this happen! 5 years ago
