Review for High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, Truckee, CA, USA
Two years ago while competing in a mountain bike race I got thrown over the handlebars and broke my neck. I sustained a C6-7 spinal cord injury that left me with complete paralysis below my shoulders. I felt isolated as I was very limited on the places I could travel in my wheelchair. During my rehabilitation I was introduced to an off-road handcycle. I was blown away and when I finally got a chance to ride one. It gave me back that sense of freedom I so desperately missed. Without High Fives help I would have never been able to afford one of my own. Now, I can go bike riding with my friends and enjoy the outdoors. Thank you High Fives!
