    THE HIGH FIVES FOUNDATION

    We are the safety net of the outdoor community.

    High Fives focuses on preventing life-changing injuries and provides resources and hope if they happen. Created as a way to “pay-it-forward” in 2009 after the founder’s own recovery, the Foundation has since expanded to help hundreds of injured individuals and veterans from across the country. The High Fives Foundation is a California-based, national 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.
