The High Fives Foundation (http://www.highfivesfoundation.org) is a non-profit that provides resources and support to the dreams of mountain action sports athletes who's lives have been turned upside down after a life-altering injury.
The true depth of what they give is beyond comprehension, but here is our effort to show the inspiration, love, appreciation, community, and overall perspective they help shape for their family and all those who come in contact. Beyond the veil of physical support, this is what High Fives truly stands for.

Featuring High Fives Athletes:
We would be lying if we said working with High Fives hasn't changed our lives for the better. We still can't look at some of this footage without getting goosebumps on our skin and tears in our eyes. Thank you High Fives for all that you do.
