Diana Nyad, the 64-year-old woman who recently made headlines for her daring and successful record-breaking 110-mile swim from Havana, Cuba to Key West, Florida without a shark cage, is currently on a 48-hour swim to raise money for Sandy relief.


To mark the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, I will swim for 48 continuous hours in NYC’s iconic Herald Square….donated funds directly support AmeriCares’ Sandy-related recovery activities.

It’s natural to show support and compassion for victims of natural disasters during the moment of tragedy. It’s equally important to show solidarity for those who are still working to repair their lives almost a year later.

This swim is about demonstrating that we continue to stand by their side supporting them as passionately now, as we did then.

She began the swim yesterday (October 8th) at 8:30 am and will wrap it up tomorrow (October 10th) at 8:30 am.

You can support her efforts by donating at AmeriCares.
