At the Save the Bay Swim 500 swimmers traverse 1.7 miles from Newport to Jamestown to raise money and awareness for Save The Bay. Volunteers are needed to support this event!

This team cheers for and assists our swimmers after they cross the finish line! Volunteers can expect to be at least thigh - deep in the water, offering a hand to any swimmer who needs it as they walk up the beach to receive their medal.  They will also guard the finish line area to prevent spectators from unintentionally interfering with the swimmers’ check in. YOU MUST WEAR WATER SHOES for this role- no flip flops! 

All Jamestown volunteers will also help with beach setup and breakdown.

PLEASE NOTE: It is about a 5-10 minute walk from the parking area to volunteer check-in. 

We have many volunteer roles at The Swim! To view the full list, visit the Swim Volunteer Page.

Inclement Weather Plan: The swim goes on rain or shine. The only reason the swim would be cancelled would be for fog or unsafe nautical conditions– if that should happen the decision will be made that morning. Please check your messages before you leave home to volunteer.
