If you played, donated or helped work in the golf tournament this year, we cannot thank you enough. Our 6th Annual East Coast High Fives Foundation charity golf tournament, held on August 10th, 2018, at the beautiful Killington Golf Course, was a huge success!
Smiles & High Fives were endless as we raised over $10,000. The tournament is a fundraising event to strengthen the Foundation’s Empowerment Fund which provides grant assistance to injured outdoor action sports athletes. The Empowerment fund was created with the intention to directly impact individuals with life-altering injuries in a positive and influential way.

Tournament participants enjoyed a variety of competitions in addition to 18 holes of golf. Activities included a “Break the Glass” competition presented by Elevation PT, where participants attempted to shatter a pane of glass from 25-yards away. A FORD was up for grabs in the Formula Ford “Hole in One Competition”. Participants swung for the fences in the “Smith Optics Baseball Bat Long Drive” contest, which replaces your driver with a baseball bat. The Race Stock, “Ski Boot Long Drive” had participants swinging their drivers with ski books on. The Vermont Village, “Straightest Drive”. And the SNOCRU “Throw club” competition were just a few of the competitions that kept the High Fives going!
