Buzzards Bay Swim - June 22, 2019

URSolshine

Buzzards Bay is one of the most beautiful coastal waterways on the East Coast, but it's under constant threat from dangers like nitrogen pollution, oil spills, and disappearing forests and wetlands.

You can help save Buzzards Bay by donating to my upcoming Buzzards Bay Swim on Saturday, June 22. Our team will be doing our part by joining hundreds of others in swimming 1.2 miles across outer New Bedford Harbor as we raise funds for and awareness of the need to protect clean water in our community.

One small donation at a time, over 26 years, swimmers like us have raised more than a million dollars to fight pollution, permanently protect natural areas, harness the power of science, and increase access to the outdoors for all people.

Through this challenging event, we're hoping to raise funds for the Buzzards Bay Coalition's conservation, research, advocacy, and education work. Your donation will truly make a difference in helping to protect clean water for us all and for future generations!

Thank you for your support!

P.S. You can join me at the Swim on June 22 from 7-10am — there's a breakfast beach party at Fort Phoenix in Fairhaven that's open to everybody. Hope to see you there!
