NRHS to participate in Nate Kramer benefit

New Richmond High School will join the University of Cincinnati swim team in “The Ted Mullin Hour of Power” cancer awareness swim relay from 3 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22 to benefit the Nate Kramer Medical Fund.

Kramer, a 2007 graduate of New Richmond, was diag¬¬nosed with Leukemia last June following the completion of his collegiate swimming career at the University of Cincinnati.

After being cut from basketball in middle school, Kramer switched to swimming and went on to set school records in the 200-meter and 500-meter freestyles, the 200 Individual Medley and the 100-meter backstroke and won a scholarship to swim for UC.

“Nate is one of an elite group of New Richmond High School graduates to receive a scholarship to a Division I college to participate in athletics,” said NRHS teacher Rick Mahan.

The benefit will be held at the New Richmond High School pool after school on the 22nd.

“We ask that you bring a donation and come swim or just watch,” said Mahan.
Anyone wishing to donate or has any questions can contact Mahan (553-3191 Ext. 10214), Malissa Cornette (553-3191 Ext. 10306) or Judy Middeler (553-3161 Ext. 11027).
