Landon McGauley


Landon broke his back July of 2010 while competing on his mountain bike. In the summer Landon’s passion is mountain biking and in the winter, skiing filled that same passion. The Winter Empowerment Fund enabled Landon to return to the mountain and be with his friends & family. His goal of making the Canadian Paralympic Ski Team was accelerated by the High Fives Foundation, but now, his hard-working, never give-up attitude is going to get him there.

“In 2010 I had a life-altering accident. Thanks to the High Fives Foundation, it’s been a positive one.”
