|NCA Charities pairs with Regional Clubs to boost funds|
When the Newfoundland Club of America (NCA) Newfoundland Health Challenge (NHC) was launched in 1996, Regional Clubs were identified as one of the primary sources of fundraising. Some Regional Clubs have worked hard ever since to support the program. The NCA Charitable Trust
would love to see 100% participation and is initiating a new program to stimulate the active involvement of all Regional Clubs by asking each club to devote one project or activity a year to the fundraising efforts to support the Charitable Trust Health Challenge and/or Rescue initiatives. Check with your Regional Club
and see how you can get involved in grass-roots fundraising for NCA Charities to help us ensure a safe and healthy future for every Newfoundland.
