2021 FAT SKI-A-THON BROKE HIGH FIVES HISTORY

Screen Shot 2021-03-15 at 9.14.16 AM

Because of you, we stared down at the lofty goal of raising $250,000 and challenged it as we always do; further raising the bar as the safety-net of the outdoor sports community. Collectively we gathered a total of $272,641 in direct support of athletes and veterans in need. We celebrated the 10th Anniversary of this staple event by taking hot laps on Super Bravo, sharing impactful moments, and sporting our impressively funky helmets and creative outfits (looking at you, Annabelle and Whit!).

We won’t deny that the slopes of Sugarbush looked a little different this year with smiles hidden behind masks, but your smiles were felt through it all, and this barrier only further proves that this community is unlike any other.

We have the ability to create change for the entire outdoor community from this annual event. In its tenth year, it showed that our collective group of partners, athletes, volunteers, staff, donors and participants can adapt and overcome with the goals of putting the “fun” in fundraising and continuing the mission.

says Roy Tuscany, Vermont Native and High Fives CEO.
