$ 200.00 raised
On July 9, I'll be participating in the Bay Parade to support Baykeeper's efforts in keeping the San Francisco Bay clean and healthy for people and creatures in our local communities. This 6.5 mile relay swim from the Golden Gate Bridge to McCovey Cove is done in service to all us that benefit from cleaner water and cleaner beaches. Who is Baykeeper? They're an awesome nonprofit doing very necessary but very unsexy work. Baykeeper monitors water quality, uses science, and on-the-water patrols in order to identify the greatest threats to the health of the Bay’s ecosystem. Then they strategically use advocacy, public education, and legal action to secure smart solutions that stop pollution and restore water quality. Since 1989, Baykeeper has: compelled cleanup of hundreds of refineries, chemical companies, landfills, and city streets; kept hundreds of millions of gallons of untreated sewage out of local neighborhoods; won federal court victories to regulate pesticides, invasive species, and vessel pollution; been recognized as a national leader in oil spill prevention and response; conducted regular patrols to monitor water quality; and responded to hundreds of citizen pollution reports through the pollution hotline. Help me make Baykeeper's work a hell of a lot sexier, and support our team's participation in the Bay Parade! Thank you! Denise
