Review for High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, Truckee, CA, USA
In June of 2019, I sufferred a C5 incomplete injury. So, this is the beginning of my SCI journey. This year I have been focused on recovering as much function as possible doing whatever I can. My dad heard about High5s at Craig Hospital and applied for a grant to get me skiing again. My mother was uncomfortable with me skiing so soon after my injury, so instead High5s gave me a grant for a tennis sports wheelchair. Thanks to HighFives, I will be out with my team at Del Oro HS not only serving as captain but getting a chance to relearn tennis in a new way. High5s is unreal. I'm truly humbled by what they have done. Sometimes support like High5s has shown is all it takes to change the trajectory of someone's life. I am so honored to be a High5s athlete and am looking forward to future adventures as well as meeting others in the High5s community. What a fantastic organization.
