20th annual Buzzards Bay Swim
Sat, Jul 13, 2013Times:
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, 2013. 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 Swim Buzzards Bay, you are making the statement that clean water and a healthy environment are important and helping to raise much needed funds to help 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 15th, $10 from April 15-June 6, and $25 from June 7 until July 8. Register online at www.savebuzzardsbay.org/swim.
