Paige’s Big Swim for the Channel!

In the early hours of October 9th, 16 year-old Paige Kieding will dive into the Santa Barbara Channel at Anacapa Island to attempt a solo swim across the Channel to Silver Strand beach in Oxnard – a distance of about 12.4 miles. Paige came to Channelkeeper with the idea of promoting her swim as a fundraiser to support our work to protect and restore the Santa Barbara Channel and its watersheds. A lover of the ocean and passionate about ocean conservation, Paige felt Channelkeeper was the perfect fit for her fundraising campaign. You can donate and read more about her fundraiser at:
