Come Swim With Me This Weekend

I'll be swimming 24 HOURS nonstop this week-end in a gorgeous Palm Springs pool. Stunning setting, mountains circling at 360 degrees.



Prep for a unique 48-HOUR swim in a pool we're custom-building in Italy and installing in Times Square end of May.

Big Buzz NYC fund-raiser event for Hurricane Sandy Relief, just as 2013 Hurricane season starts.

Well-known New Yorkers, such as George Stephanopoulos, as well as the public at large (maybe YOU!!), will join me and show the victims of Sandy, many virtually still homeless, that we have not forgotten them. Good Morning America will be our media partner, broadcasting live all three mornings.

But more on that in the coming weeks.

This week-end, if you're in the Palm Springs area, I hope many of you will come join me (do as many laps as you choose, from just a couple to many dozen) and start the awareness of the NYAD 48 event later in May.

Palm Springs Mayor Steve Pougnet has graciously offered to dive in for a few laps with me.

We, the citizens of the world, are grieving for our friends in Boston this week. To express a solidarity among athletes, those who bravely ran the fabled Boston Marathon on Monday, our Xtreme Dream Team and I will be especially focused on their courage and their heartache during Hour One and Hour Twenty-Four this week-end.
Join our Twitter campaign and send your hearts to Boston with us 6-7pm PST Saturday and 5-6pm PST Sunday.

Come down to the Palm Springs pool. Talk to my Head Handler Bonnie. Swim a bit with me. Or just hang out poolside. We'd love to have your company.

Start time: 6pm, Saturday, April 20th, 2013
Finish: 6pm, Sunday, April 21, 2013
