The Swim is Save The Bay’s largest annual fundraiser, exemplifying our vision that everyone has the right to a swimmable, fishable, healthy, and accessible Bay. 500 swimmers and nearly 200 kayakers traverse 1.7 miles from Newport to Jamestown to raise money and awareness for Save The Bay. Volunteers are needed to support this event!
