In 2011 Mark was hunting when he fell from a tree, breaking T12 and L1 rendering him paralyzed. Mark reached out to the High Fives Foundation nearly 3 years ago through the Real Answers message board on the old High Fives website. Much like any spinal cord injured individual, Mark had many questions, and a lot of them were exercised based. CR Johnson Healing Center Coordinator – Steve Wallace filled him in on what he had done in the hospital and at home and Mark immediately went to work, and it has shown, as Mark has had a tremendous recovery. Mark wants to make a 100% recovery. Along with making a 100% recovery, Mark wants to return to the active things that he used to love such as surfing and skiing. Last year Mark received a grant for $1,500.00 to ski at Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports, and since then the ski bug has bitten him.
