Please help us support and protect a healthy Narragansett Bay by joining or making a tax-deductible contribution to SwimRI's fundraising team for the 2021 Save The Bay Swim. This year's 1.7-mile open-water channel crossing from the Naval War College in Newport to Potter's Cove in Jamestown, Rhode Island, will take place on Saturday, July 17th.
For the past several years, SwimRI and its predecessor (the former Newport Athletic Club team) has been the largest Save The Bay team, both in participants and aggregate funds raised.
Your support will help support Save The Bay's mission to protect and improve Narragansett Bay as a swimmable, fishable, healthy waterway that is accessible to all and recognized as the natural treasure it is.
Save The Bay defends the public's right to use and enjoy the Bay and its surrounding waters, and it fosters an ethic of environmental stewardship among people who live in or visit the Narragansett Bay region. Save The Bay's leadership, staff and volunteers support an ecosystem-based approach to environmental action:
- The Narragansett Baykeeper, Narragansett Bay Riverkeeper and South County Coastkeeper act as watchdogs to ensure the Bay and its watershed are protected.
- Educators keep the public aware of the importance of our waters and teach good stewardship.
- The policy team works with state and local governments to pass laws that protect the Bay and keep lines of communication open with lawmakers on the importance of environmental action.
- The habitat restoration team restores and improves the ecological health of coastal habitats and watershed areas.
Anyone is welcome to join or donate to this SwimRI STB fundraising team — you do NOT need to be a Masters swimmer.
Thank you for supporting Save The Bay!
