I'm swimming for clean water at the Buzzards Bay Swim!
Laurel and her family grew up swimming and boating in the waters of Buzzards Bay. Each year countless people and families head to the "Cape" to get away, relax and unwind from the 24/7 buzz of computers and commutes, work and the stresses of maintaining one's life. When I swim, I feel alive, strengthened and challenged. But more than this, I feel that I am contained within something much larger and greater than myself. Something that also is alive and breathing, ebbing and flowing and life giving. This year I would love to invite you to join with me in this endeavor to help preserve what is so precious and vital to all of us. Please give a small donation and buoy up a swimmer!
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 27. I’ll be doing my 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.
Through this challenging event, I'm hoping to meet or exceed my fundraising goal to support the Buzzards Bay Coalition's important work across conservation, research, advocacy, and education. Any amount - big or small - truly makes a difference in helping to protect clean water for today, 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!
