Earlier this morning to celebrate World Ocean Day, Ocean State of Mind founder Damian Ewens set out on The Great Underwater Boulder Walk. This ocean adventure was designed to raise awareness of the health benefits of the ocean. It will support Clean Ocean Access, and our work towards a clean, healthy ocean that is accessible to all and will raise money for the Ocean State of Mind’s New Blue Economy program for communities that have faced barriers to the ocean.
Specifically, the underwater boulder walk is a slightly crazy effort by a small group of people to move a large rock over a mile across a large bay using human power only…while underwater…and holding their breath. The underwater walk connects two of Aquidneck Island’s beautiful public access locations to the ocean: Newport’s famed Cliff Walk and the Tuckerman Ave Waterfront Public Access location.
A huge thank you to our ocean loving friends for helping us put on this incredible fundraiser!
