      Ian Comton took a trip to Lake Tahoe in July, 2012... "Once there I met up with the High Fives Foundation guys. 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. Hit up highfivesfoundation.org/ to see how rad these guys truly are. The reason for the trip was to host a High Fives Foundation week (Weak) at one of the most fun places I have ever been to...Woodward Tahoe. Much fun was had and kids walked away with some knowledge and plenty of free shwag. Big up's to you Woodward, you're doing an amazing thing." -Ian Compton

        On March 20th, 2011 while winter kayaking Jason Craig hit a 30’ waterfall and landed on a submerged rock which shattered his sacrum, burst fractured L4, L5, and suffered neurological compression and severage. This injury left Jason with many questions as to his future as an athlete and also burdened him with an unbelievable amount of constant pain. The High Fives Foundation provided Jason with rehabilitative healing therapies such as Physical Therapy with Scott Williams (P.T.) of Synergy Therapeautics, Acupuncture with Bird Lew (L.Ac), Massage Therapy with Karen Stubbs (L.M.T.), winter ski equipment and lessons as well BAR Effect classes with Michelle Rahlves. These therapies along with time spent in the gym, and in the water would not be possible without the generosity of the donations received through the Winter Empowerment Fund, SpineNevada and an anonymous donor from the water sports industry. The Winter Empowerment Fund helps athletes living with a life-altering injury such as a Traumatic Brain Injury or Spinal Cord Injury; reach their personal goals such as walking again, returning to skiing/snowboarding or competing in adaptive sports. Additionally, the Winter Empowerment Fund provides athletes with personalized support services, provider referrals, funding for alternative therapies and adaptive equipment, as well as free access to our Healing Center. The High Fives Foundation’s Board of Directors awards grants upon approval by the Grant Selection Committee. To date, 54 athletes have been helped via the Winter Empowerment Fund. About Jason Craig: A Reno, NV resident, Jason found his passion in paddling at a young age and traveled around the globe as a professional kayaker. At 16 he won the 2009 Freestyle Kayaking World Championships in Thun, Switzerland. His story is one of triumph over adversity and a steadfast determination to return to the top echelon of the sport he loves: white water kayaking. This video illustrates the profound wisdom seldom seen in a young person, especially one that has suffered such trauma to mind and body. To rise from a terrible low, to live and learn while moving forward positively and to share his vision of success in recovery is part of Jason's life as an athlete. Jason is now working hard to hike out of the Zambezi, ski powder, boulder in Bishop, and run the high Sierra multi-day classics once again.

                On May 17, 2012, the Golf Club at Gray's Crossing hosted the 2nd Annual High Fives Foundation Charity Golf Tournament presented by SpineNevada. One of the the many side contests that were held during the tournament was the Break the Glass Contest presented by Northwestern Mutual. The field of competitors was tough as nearly the entire field of 116 golfers took two swings at breaking a pane of glass. Six competitors succeeded in breaking the glass. After that, the six talented golfers had a superfinal in which the Northwestern Mutual – Break the Glass Contest winner was decided as Ian Winters. Congratulations to Ian and special thanks to GoPro for providing the HD Hero 2 Cameras so this spectacular contest could be captured. www.highfivesfoundation.org www.facebook.com/HighFivesFoundation www.twitter.com/hi5sfoundation
