Empowering Lives,
One Athlete at a Time

Physical disabilities resulting from a life-altering accident and cognitive disabilities potentially resulting from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are more than challenging but our Foundation has realized that recovery can be found in community.

With the help of our rehabilitation services, adaptive sports programs, and adaptive sports center, High Fives Athletes have returned to active lives with some going on to participate in the Paralympic Games and Special Olympics.

Our Community is
What Drives Us

We are inclusive. We are better together. We are a team. At High Fives, we practice what we preach and inspire one another. We are skiers. We are surfers. We are anglers. We love what we do, and even though life may be different, we love it all the same.

Help an athlete achieve their goal.
