Five For Fives – Pledge To Donate 5% Of All HF Promoted Sales To High Fives.
The High Fives Foundation is a Lake Tahoe based 501.c.3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes that suffer life-altering injuries while pursuing a dream in the winter action sports community. The Foundation was started as a way to “pay it forward” for co-founder Roy Tuscany’s’ own personal recovery from a life-altering spinal cord injury in 2006. Since its inception in 2009, the foundation has assisted 54 athletes through the Winter Empowerment Fund. From the beginning High Fives has been there to help an athlete after they had crashed but with the development of newest program service of the foundation, B.A.S.I.C.S. (developed with pro athlete J.T. Holmes) we are teaching prevention to young inspiring athletes through video presentation and one-on-one coaching clinics to catch the athlete before they crash. The last program service of the foundation is the fully functional rehabilitation facility which the High Fives office also resides in, know as the CR Johnson Healing Center. The Healing Center was created to provide a space to athletes to recover at their own time in a no question type of environment. High Fives was honored to be the 2011 Truckee Donne Chamber of Commerce and Powder Magazine’s featured “Non-Profit” four years in a row. www.highfivesfoundation.org/
