My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, Truckee, CA, USA
I was injured nine years ago in a diving accident that left me paralyzed from my chest down. I was always active prior to my injury and being injured didn't slow me down. I am always looking for new things to try and ways to continue to be healthy and active. Since being injured I have repel down a building, been rock climbing, got certified in scuba diving, been parasailing, skiing, water-skiing, kayaking, and work out daily.Last year I started practicing with our local quad rugby team and I fell in love with the sport. I needed to be able to get enough money to be able to purchase my own rugby chair so that I can join the team and compete with them. I have been blessed in receiving a partial scholarship from the High Fives Foundation that will go towards the purchasing of a rugby chair so I can pursue my goal of competing with my local team. Without foundations like High Fives I would not be able to afford to play the sport due to the cost of equipment. I can't tell you how grateful I am for those who make donations and support organizations like this and allow me to follow my passion. Thank you High Fives Foundation and all you do!
