Clinton was riding his mountain bike on a local course and flipped over the handlebars and lost control landing on his head. This lead to a contusion that paralyzed him from the chest down sustaining a C6-7 incomplete tetraplegic spinal cord injury.
When asked what High Fives means to Clinton he responded – having this bike will give me the freedom to leave the house and get active. It will make me feel like doing what I love without the fear of getting injured again. I will be able to join in with others, to meet new people, and enjoy the sport of mountain biking once again.
