Great Grants for Kids
The Nancy Buck Ransom Foundation will match donations dollar for dollar through the end of this year to help 22 children who come to Kernes Pool. Your gift is now doubly valuable!
Autism Speaks is providing scholarships to teach five terrific kids swimming and water safety skills.
Warm water exercise improves children’s coordination, communication, and social interaction. One mom notes, “The pool helps my son feel more relaxed, more confident, more focused.”
Would you or someone you know benefit from warm water exercise?
One person in five has a disability. Please share our website with friends and family for information about our warm water exercise programs and other community resources.
