The Buck Fifty is a 150-mile relay race that is run by 10 individuals in 24 hours around the city of Chillicothe, Ohio. It’s second year in inception, the relay has doubled in runners to support the nearly 1,600+ high school students who have committed to remain drug-free. In spite of national media rhetoric of the drug epidemic in the city of Chillicothe, students have chosen to be upbeat and proactive to stop drug abuse before it even begins. Students in the M.A.D.E Drug-Free Club of America program renew their commitment yearly by signing up to allow for random drug test selection. Chillicothe schools along with the S.V.C. have a remarkable 60% participation–with Huntington High School having an astonishing 80% of their student body involved, with goals to get that number to 100%.
