RETIRED AIR FORCE MASTER SERGEANT SHAY HAMPTON JUST PARTICIPATED IN HIS SECOND YEAR OF THE MILITARY OF THE MOUNTAIN PROGRAM. GETTING BACK OUT ON THE SLOPES OF SQUAW VALLEY ALPINE MEADOWS WITH 21 OTHER CRITICALLY WOUNDED US VETERANS IS JUST A DROP IN THE BUCKET OF SHAY’S RECENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
On June 9, 2018, US Air Force Veteran Shay Hampton completed his fourth goal in the High Fives Foundation X Arcade Goal Belt Program. His goal was to achieve a medal in the Department of Defense Warrior Games. He not only received a medal in the Games, he won multiple medals – Gold, silver and bronze.
THE BELT PROGRAM, WHICH IS SIMILAR TO A KARATE BELT SYSTEM, REWARDS HIGH FIVES ATHLETES WITH AN ARCADE BELT CONTAINING A NEW GOLD STAR FOR EACH MILESTONE ACHIEVED. THIS FRAMEWORK IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE CLARITY, SUPPORT, COMPETITION AND INSPIRATION FOR OTHERS AS THESE ATHLETES WORK TO REBUILD THEIR LIVES.
