Team Buzzards Bay raised an outstanding $20,000 for clean water at the 2016 Falmouth Road Race.

Team Buzzards Bay competed in the Falmouth Road Race through the Numbers for Nonprofits program, which provides race entries for Massachusetts-based nonprofit organizations to fundraise for their causes. With the Coalition’s 10 entries, team members raised over $20,000 for the Coalition’s efforts to protect and restore clean water in Buzzards Bay.

You can still support our work by making a donation to Team Buzzards Bay by the end of August.
