Breckenridge athlete Bond Camp receives a second Empowerment Grant of $3,568 towards Personal Training and Manual Therapy
The High Fives Foundation – Empowerment program service disburses board-approved grants to mountain action sports athletes who are recovering from a life-altering injury. In March, the Foundation’s Board of Directors Grant Selection Committee approved a grant for Breckenridge Empowerment Athlete Bond Camp totaling $3,568.
The Board-approved grant awarded to Camp will be split between Physical Therapy at the PEAK Center at Craig Hospital and Manual Therapy at Physical Therapy and Injury Specialists both located in Englewood, Colo. This is the second grant that Camp has received from the High Fives Foundation.
On January 2, 2015, Camp was backcountry skiing in his hometown of Breckenridge, Colo. in an area called Crystal Lakes. While skiing one of his favorite lines, Bond caught an edge causing him to spin around and land on his back. The impact led to T2 and T3 fractures causing paralysis from the chest down. Along with the spinal cord injury, Bond suffered a broken scapula, three broken ribs and a punctured lung.
This March grant will help Camp tremendously while he is recovering from his injury. Camp will receive one-on-one personal training utilizing cutting edge technology by the specialized staff at the PEAK Center. At Physical Therapy and Injury Specialists, Bond will be provided treatment that includes manual skills and an exercise program that will optimize his recovery process.
