Smiles & High Fives were endless as we raised over $35,000. The tournament is a fundraising event to strengthen the Foundation’s Empowerment Fund which provides grant assistance to injured outdoor action sports athletes and Veterans. The Empowerment fund was created with the intention to directly impact individuals with life-altering injuries in a positive and influential way.
