2017 Million Yard Challenge

Please support NHS Girls Swimming & Diving in our 5th annual Million Yard Challenge!

During the week of 8/28 the NHS girls swimming & diving team will collectively swim ONE MILLION yards. We will average 200,000 yards per day. Over 606 miles! 40,000 lengths of the pool!

Swimming is an individual sport, but this is a team goal. During this week of practice we will encourage each other and motivate each other to finish every last yard.

Not only are these funds important to the team, but this year we will be donating 10% of the funds raised to the Needham Food Pantry

Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated. But here are some suggestions.

-$10- That's a dollar for every Bay State Conference Meet we are going to compete to win in.

-$18: That's a dollar for every meet NHS Swimming and Diving will compete in during the 2012 season.

-$32: That's 20 cents for every length of the pool each swimmer is going to to every day (that 160 lengths of the pool)

-$40: That's 50 cents for every lap (2 lengths of the pool) that each swimmer will do every day.

-$45: That's $1 for every member of the team

-$50: That's $10 for every day the NHS Swimming and Diving Team will be working towards our Million Yard goal.

If you dont want to donate here, you can also give your favorite NHS swimmer or diver a donation via cash or check(made out the to the NHS Girls Swimming & Diving). It still counts towards our goal.

Thank you for your donation!
