At 12 noon, "cupids" will dash and splash in the water to demonstrate their commitment to a clean Boston Harbor and to support their beach. Immediately following the splash, participants and their fans and friends will adjourn on the beach- to warm up and relax with a Harpoon beer.
Participants will raise funds to support Save the Harbor/Save the Bay and its Better Beaches program. Participants are encouraged to sport their finest “cupid” attire!
To register to participate, click the "register" button above. Each participant is asked to raise at least $25. To pledge a participant, click on the "donate" button. Funds raised will support free events and programs on our region’s public beaches.
