Have you ever wanted to do something for personal reasons but in doing so, you knew you would be able to help a lot of people?
If so, you might be able to relate to the “WHY” of our race! This race came to be because a small group of people saw a need. Our community and countless others like it have been faced with a drug epidemic. We have to protect our young children and as parents ourselves, we wanted to get involved. Like many, when an issue is this vast, we wondered, how do we get involved, how we help find a solution? As members of First Capital Rotary in Chillicothe, we are taking action by operating a program, for our local youth that will stimulate a drug free culture around them throughout their day. Like most good things this will requires funding. This is where our 100% Volunteer Based Race Committee was created. And then, The Buck Fifty was born!
