POC’S mission is to do the best they can to possibly save lives and to reduce the consequences of accidents for gravity sports athletes and cyclists. The vision of the B.A.S.I.C.S. program shares in those objectives. Partnership between POC and the High Fives Foundation began in 2012 with the BASICS documentary #HelmetsAreCool. Together, POC and High Fives will directly reduce the number of avoidable life-altering injuries that happen in mountain action sports.
Tahoe Forest Health System creates collaborations which facilitate the exploration of creative opportunities and solutions that result in excellence in community health care. Through partnership with the High Fives Foundation, these organizations are working together to educate the youth of mountain action sports about making smart decisions that will promote a lifetime of activities in the mountains and on the snow.
