NCRD/Nehalem swim students look for sponsors


The NCRD’s 29th annual Pool-A-Thon is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 16.
This event raises a substantial amount of funds necessary to keep the NCRD/Nehalem Elementary Swim Program afloat!
All proceeds from the Pool-A-Thon go directly toward the 2019/20 NCRD/ Nehalem Elementary Swim Instruction/Water Safety Awareness Program which impacts the lives of all students, kindergarten through fifth grade, including the NKN District #56 Adaptive Swim Program.
By pledging money or making a donation to a student swimmer, you can help guarantee all the children will benefit from this vital program that has been in existence for over 87 years!!
We each can play an important role in maintaining our community’s essential values, and your monetary investment in the Learn to Swim Program will make a real and genuine impact.
Participating kids will be canvassing throughout the community Jan. 17 through Feb. 23, looking for sponsors who will pledge dollars for their swimming efforts.
