Mattapoisett resident among top fundraisers in Watershed Ride
Out of more than 400 cyclists, Mattapoisett resident Chip Jones was among the top fundraisers for the Buzzards Bay Watershed Ride on Oct. 3 — amassing $10,347.
Jones was the third-largest fundraiser, behind only Ken Cheitlin of Pocasset, who raised $11,846 and Drew Dimmick of Vineyard Haven, raising $10,550.
Funds raised by cyclists in the 100-mile ride from Rhode Island to Woods Hole will go to keeping the water in Buzzards Bay clean.
“This year is our biggest Watershed Ride and one of the best yet - enthusiastic participation, a stunning route, and beautiful fall weather,” said Buzzards Bay Coalition President Mark Rasmussen. “It felt great to return to our traditional course and to welcome so many new cyclists to this spectacular celebration of the Bay.”
