The funds raised during Diana Nyad's marathon swim are going to Hurricane Sandy relief.

Nyad's 48 hours of laps raised $110,000 for the charity AmeriCares.

Part of the proceeds will fund art therapy for after-school programs in the Rockaways.

Another chunk will go to help screen Staten Island residents suffering from medical and mental health issues since the storm.
