Protecting a Valuable Resource
With 400 miles of coastline in Rhode Island, Bradford is doing its part to protect the beautiful Narragansett Bay through our Save the Bay sponsorship. Save the Bay was established in 1970, with the mission to protect and improve Narragansett Bay. Their vision is a fully swimmable, fishable, healthy Narragansett Bay, accessible to all and globally recognized as a natural treasure. Bradford has been a member since 2018
The annual Save the Bay Swim is the most recognized Save The Bay event and fundraiser. Over 500 swimmers and nearly 200 kayakers traverse 1.7 miles across Narragansett Bay to raise money and awareness for Save The Bay. Bradford learned that the swimmers and boaters had no convenient way to wash off after the arduous swim, so we built custom showers to rinse off after the race. Now they can enjoy the post-race party without being covered in salt and seaweed. We are happy to help - after all, bathing is our specialty! As part of the event, Bradford handed out free soap to the swimmers to enjoy at home. Great job to everyone who raised money and completed the challenging swim!!!
