Across the Bay 10K 2014 header

Our Story

On November 9, 2014, we will be participating in the Across the Bay 10K. It begins at Sandy Point State Park, crosses over the Chesapeake Bay via the 4.35-mile Bay Bridge, and finishes with a celebration on Kent Island.

As our team runs across the Chesapeake Bay that means so much to each of us, we will also be raising money for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to help them restore this national treasure we love.

CBF is funded mostly by individual donors like you and me. Donations large and small help support CBF's on-the-water field experiences for students and teachers, tree plantings, oyster restoration, advocacy for stronger laws protecting the Bay, and litigation against polluters when necessary.

Every gift makes a difference!

* $25 can plant five native trees as a streamside buffer.
* $50 can grow 5,000 native oysters.
* $140 can send two students for a day of learning in and around the Bay.
* $500 can build 10 reef balls which are effective and safe artificial homes for oysters.
