Upcoming Events for Reach Outside 

Academic Year 2019-2020

 Please note:

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Reach Outside had to cancel all late winter and spring events. Before this, we had two skiing events fully planned. One was downhill skiing at Mt. Holly and the other was cross country skiing at the XC Ski Headquarters. The Reach Outside Adventure Race (ROAR) and the end of the year send-off event were in the process of being planned and also had to be canceled.

Unfortunately, we weren't able to do many of the things we wanted to do this year but we wanted to say thank you to everyone who worked with us in planning them. We are looking forward to next year!


February 16th and February 22nd:

Tubing at Hawk Island

Reach Outside is taking two trips to Hawk Island Park to go snow tubing with two different groups! Snow tubing includes hopping onto a rubber tube and sliding down many of Hawk Island's well-maintained sledding hills. Students will also have the opportunity to roast marshmallows on a nearby campfire and play a few games to get everyone moving and outside even during the winter months!

Reach Outside will cover the costs of transportation, the activities and the snacks provided.

Events with tentative dates:

Reach Outside Adventure Race (ROAR)

Reach Outside will be partnering with Playmakers, Moosejaw and Michigan Running Foundation to host an adventure race at Uncle John's Cider Mill! This 5K race is open to all students, families and friends with a $20 entrance fee that will get you a T-shirt and running tag! All extra proceeds will be put towards future Reach Outside Events. This race will include challenges and obstacles to keep everyone on their toes, we hope to see you there!



End of the Year "Send off"

To wrap up the year Reach Outside, our volunteers and partners will all be meeting at one of your local Lansing parks for an afternoon of games, food and, you guessed it, a whole lot of outdoor activities! Join us in celebrating another successful year spreading the joys of the outdoors!




Children's Race


The success of many events below are highly dependent on club funds and availability of volunteers. If you are able to help us either financially or with your time, we would greatly appreciate it! On behalf of our club and the students we serve, thank you in advance!
