Fundraising Efforts

Nickolas Roman, a senior at Lubbock Coronado High School has big dreams. He began his swimming career in middle school and has continued through his current year at high school making the Varsity team. Nickolas’s summer will not be filled with lazy days and TV watching: he will be spending his time preparing for the qualifying trials for the USA Deaflympics team. If he qualifies, he will be traveling to Turkey in 2017 with an elite group of athletes.

Nickolas is a past and current participant of our West Texas Deaf Olympics. He is asking for our help in defraying the expenses of coaches, training, travel, and swim meets while he prepares for his big moment. He and his family will be selling friendship bracelets he has made at $1-$7. Cash is preferred. The family will also be selling chances to win a $100 Visa Card. Please consider supporting Nickolas as he puts his dedication to the ultimate test.

Nickolas is pictured here with his interpreter.
