Review for High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, Truckee, CA, USA
After exploding my neck 2 1/2 years ago, I thought my life of adventure and adrenaline seeking was over. With the help of High Fives Foundation that wasn't the case. I started sit-skiing a year after my injury in Big Sky, Montana. I was lucky enough to receive some funding from a local foundation my first season back which helped pay for lessons and get back in the groove of things. This most resent season I was awarded the empowerment grant from High Fives which paid for 15 lesson through an adaptive ski program called Eagle Mount. I progressed from a bi ski to a mono ski by the time the season got cut short. I am thankful every day that I have the support from such a rad program like High Fives to continue exploring the possibilities of outdoor adventure still.
