Block Island to Jamestown: August 1, 2021

Event rescheduled for August 1, 2021 with start time at 5:00 a.m.

As of July 31, 2021 at 9:00 p.m. we are at $82,500 for our fundraising goal, your support of any kind will get us safely to the finish line, to work together to improve ocean health. Thank you!

We are continually impressed by the dedication and perseverance of Ben. He has been training for his big swim, and is almost ready to go! The big day is only one week away. We can’t all swim 19 miles in the open ocean, but we can all stand up for our ocean. We can all be “Tuff” like Ben. How do you take action for a clean, healthy ocean that is accessible to all? One thing you can do with one easy click is support Ben in his epic swim.

When making a donation, use the “Write a Note (Optional)” field to leave a note for Ben and/or share your desired gift acknowledgment name.  

Ben will be the first person to swim from Block Island to Jamestown, RI with the goal of improving ocean health through Clean Ocean Access’ efforts. We are so grateful for Ben and all the ocean champions on his team who share our vision of a clean, healthy ocean that is accessible. Specifically we want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far and to our current event sponsors who are supporting Ben and our ongoing work.

Help Ben & COA meet our goals for the swim!
