Help us make a BIG impact with the 2019 Swim!
For 43 years, the Save The Bay Swim has celebrated the improving quality of Narragansett Bay. Participants have raised funds that provide critical support to Save The Bay’s advocacy, education and habitat adaptation efforts, and help raise awareness about water quality concerns and improvements.
Early swimmers remember seeing entire refrigerators, rusted junk, garbage and debris during their 1.7-nautical-mile journey across the Bay. Today, the Swim is a far cleaner, but no less meaningful, experience thanks to the thousands of participants and donors who have supported the event over the decades.
This year, one of our long-time swimmers has offered to donate an additional $25,000 to our efforts… but only if we meet our swimmer fundraising goal.
This challenge provides Save The Bay supporters and Swim participants with a powerful opportunity to increase the impact of the Swim’s fundraising efforts.
Whether you are looking for a new way to participate in the Swim or discovering the event for the first time, we’re asking for your help to meet this challenge. It is only with support from our community that we can continue to protect and improve Narragansett Bay. Thank you for your support!
How to support Swim fundraising efforts:
- Provide a young swimmer with a Swim scholarship
Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to provide first-time Swimmers aged 15-21 with fundraising support.
