EXIT Realty Corp. International is pleased to welcome Diana Nyad to its Convention stage.

At the age of 64, in her fifth and final attempt, Diana Nyad successfully fulfilled her lifelong dream of completing the 110-mile swim from Cuba to Florida on September 2, 2013. Upon completing her grueling 53-hour journey, a breathless Diana told the world, “I have three messages. One is we should never ever give up. Two is you are never too old to chase your dreams. And three is it looks like a solitary sport, but it takes a team.”

Diana has never been one to quit. In July of 2010, at the age of 60, she began her “Xtreme Dream” quest of swimming from Cuba to Florida, a task she had failed to finish thirty years previously. When asked her motivation, she replied, “Because I’d like to prove to the other 60-year-olds that it is never too late to start your dreams.” Diana was unsuccessful in her quest in 2010 and tried two more times 2011 and 2012 before completing the historic swim in 2013.

Back in the 1970’s, Diana was the greatest long-distance swimmer in the world. Her world records, such as circling Manhattan Island and crossing the 102.5 miles between the Bahamas and Florida, have led to inductions to many Halls of Fame, such as the International Women’s Sports Hall of Fame.

Diana became a prominent sports broadcaster, filing compelling reports for NPR, ABC’s Wide World of Sports, Fox Sports, and The New York Times. She has written three books and speaks French and Spanish fluently. Diana has also earned the reputation of a uniquely passionate and entertaining public speaker, earning standing ovations with a broad spectrum of audiences.

In her 2015 memoir, Find a Way, Diana engages readers with a unique, passionate story of this heroic adventure and the extraordinary life experiences that have served to carve her unwavering spirit.

EXIT Realty’s not-to-be-missed extravaganza will be held at the prestigious Gaylord Texan Resort Hotel & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas from October 24th to 27th, 2017. Featuring acclaimed speakers, fantastic giveaways, real-world education and technology, the event will build in a crescendo to the incredible dance-‘til- you-drop formal Chairman’s Ball Gala. The EXIT Annual Convention is an experience of a lifetime!  EXIT Associates can find out more and register on the Resource Center.
