Reef & Run is proud to continue Nick Nite on Thursday, June 21
This will be the fifth year that Reef and Run has dedicated “Nick Nite” to raise money for a local scholarship given in Nick Johnson’s name. His enduring legacy has made Nick Nite into Reef and Run’s most-attended week of the season.
All R&R participants will be asked to make a contribution to the Nicholas Johnson Memorial Fund in lieu of registration fees.
Nick was a wonderful son and brother in the Johnson Family, a long time Jr. Lifeguard participant, then instructor, SBHS and UCSB water polo player and SB beach lifeguard who tragically died from shallow water blackout during a swim workout in 2014. Nick was one of those young men who was admired, respected and loved by all who knew him. The Johnson Family created a scholarship in his honor; friends and family also contributed to the Nick Johnson Memorial lifeguard tower which continues to watch over the Jr. Lifeguard program and aquatic activities at East Beach while proudly reminding us of Nick’s contributions to so many aspects of the Santa Barbara athletic and aquatic communities.
We look forward to seeing all of you at Nick Nite.
Checks can be made out to SBHS Aquatic Booster Club with the Nick Johnson Memorial Fund denoted in the memo section.
