Thanks to everyone who supported my swim with Save the Bay to restore and protect the Narragansett Bay. My time for the 1.7 mile swim from Newport to Jamestown was 1:00:25–seven minutes faster than last year. I broke my personal fundraising mark of last year with $545. My team, East Side YMCA raised $10,666, and as an organization Save the Bay raised over $275,000 with this year’s swim. Thanks again!

This coming Saturday, July 17, I am swimming the 40th annual Save the Bay swim, which raises money to protect the Narragansett Bay. This is a 1.7 mile swim across the East Passage of the Narragansett from the Newport Naval Station to Jamestown. I’ve had a lot of fun training, meeting other swimmers, and raising funds for this event. If you’d like to support me, you can visit my Webpage and make a donation. I will have a post swim report after Saturday. Thanks to everyone who has supported me and the work of protecting our environment.
