Myrtha Pools has been proud to supply the swimming pool for the NYAD48 eventwhich took place in Herald Square NYC on October 8-10, 2013.
Diana Nyad, who just recently completed her record setting open water swim from Cuba to Key West, swam for 48 consecutive hours to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims through the American Red Cross.
On October 8-10, 2013, Diana Nyad swam again, in a Myrtha Pool with a Neptune-Benson filtration system.
Myrtha has specially designed a pool for the event, being built in New York City’s Herald Square just outside of Macy’s .
Myrtha Pools has teamed up on several occasions for special events such as this with Spear Corporation, an Indiana based pool design, installation and Service Company; Sunbelt Pools, a Texas based commercial pool construction company; and Neptune Benson, a Rhode Island based pool filtration manufacturer.
Myrtha Pools, together with this team, have previously installed two Olympic sized pools in Omaha, NE at the Century Link Center for the 2012 US Olympic Swimming Team Trials in just 10 days. This has been an Olympic fete in itself; however, this pool was erected in the middle one of the busiest cities in the U.S. and ready for Diana to enter the pool in less than 24 hours.
There are many victims that need help after suffering the devastation that Super storm Sandy left in her wake. The hope is to raise awareness and money for these victims to help them to resume their lives the way they were before this storm hit.
