Through the words, actions and right choices made by some of today’s top professional athletes and musicians, Nixon and Natural High distributed the highly anticipated film “Natural High 4”, to every middle school in the country this September. Natural High 4, produced by Jon Sundt, features interviews with sober icons such as Paul Rodriguez Jr., Lisa Leslie, and Timmy Curran who enthusiastically share their decision to say “no” to drugs and alcohol and “yes” to a passion that got them naturally high.
Paul Rodriguez Jr., professional skateboarder and X-Games gold medalist tells kids in Natural High 4, “My natural high is skateboarding. Whatever it is you do, just accomplishing something after trying it for weeks, months, days, hours, and finally you land a trick, and finally you’re rolling away, it’s just amazing. It’s literally a buzz.” The goal of Paul and the rest of the athletes and musicians in Natural High 4 is to encourage kids to find that natural high, or passion that makes them feel good inside and can take the place of what drugs and alcohol fill in many other’s lives.
