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 will start off by assisting with unloading kayaks and directing cars at the kayak drop-off area. Once the Swim begins, you will be in and out of the water (knee to thigh high), collecting athlete pinnies from all of the kayakers that come in off the water from the event. You will need to take the pinnies to the check out table for our staff to mark off that the kayaker has made it to land safely. You will then need to give a Participant Shirt to the kayaker.
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.
