Challenge yourself with the 20th Annual Buzzards Bay Swim while raising money to protect this essential natural resource. Buzzards Bay is a national treasure and one of the cleanest estuaries on the east coast, but the threats to its health are mounting. This fully-supported Swim takes place the morning of Saturday, July 13. The 1.2-mile swim begins in New Bedford and ends on a sandy beach in Fairhaven with transportation after the finish celebration back to the start. The event includes multiple starts for more accomplished swimmers and for swimmers who prefer to have a safety kayak escort. By participating in the Buzzards Bay Swim, you are making the statement that clean water and a healthy environment are important and also help to raise much-needed funds to protect our precious Buzzards Bay. Your fundraising ($150 minimum) will go directly toward education, conservation, research and advocacy programs at the Buzzards Bay Coalition. This is a great training swim for triathlon competitors and is appropriate for fit families as well.
Registration opens February 15 and is free until April 15, $10 from April 15 to June 6, and $25 from June 7 until July 8. Register online at www.savebuzzardsbay.org/swim.
