The Natural High 5K and Fitness Festival is a fundraising event to benefit the Summer Outreach Club, a 9-week summer day camp, free kids age 5- 12 in Scioto County and beyond. The camp offers free breakfast and lunch, and daily motivational, recreational and educational activities by partnering with community agencies and volunteers, who share hands-on learning activities, teach classes, mentor and support campers while they participate in park outings, library and museum visits, swimming and daily activities such as working in the community garden.
The Natural High 5K is the second part of the McChesney Ridge Arboretum Race Series. This series will award local schools based on the performance of their in-school runners and alumni. A traveling trophy will go to the winning school each year to be displayed in their trophy case.
