Mackensie's Virtual Save The Bay Open: 5K run, 5-mile kayak, 2-mile SUP
As many of you know, after a brief life-implosion that led to a few months of soul-searching and domestic labor on Block Island, I relocated to Providence to start my (dream) job on the communications team at Save The Bay. Being able to utilize my writing skills and marketing knowledge for an organization whose mission is to protect and improve Narragansett Bay, during their 50th year (!!!!) gives me the type of fulfillment that so few my age are lucky enough to have. From my favorite event of the year, the Newport Folk Fest at Fort Adams State Park; to my half-marathon training around Providence and our wonderful, industrial waterfront; to growing up on the beautiful beaches of South County, making up our lower watershed; so many of the activities that bring me joy & recreation revolve around Narragansett Bay!
As our 50th anniversary swim event was canceled due to COVID-19, we have decided to hold the event virtually, and open up the challenges -- great news for folks like me who don't consider themselves competitive-grade swimmers! In these strange times, we have to get creative about keeping in shape and also supporting the organizations that are being hurt by canceled events. I have accepted the challenge to run a 5K, kayak 5 miles, and SUP 2 miles to raise funds and awareness in support of Save the Bay's vision of a fully swimmable, fishable, healthy Narragansett Bay, accessible to all!
Please join me in celebrating 50 years of very crucial work advocating for important legislation, restoring vital habitats, and educating our community to be thoughtful stewards of the environment! Whatever you can give will help - it all adds up! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
