Brian Biggs has been an outdoor enthusiast since childhood, a lifestyle instilled in him by his father. When a diving accident on a rafting trip left him paralyzed from the chest down, his daily routines changed, but his desire to explore out in nature and feel the heart-pounding rush of adrenaline persisted.
Brian participated in a Return to Dirt camp this year that brought him back to the backcountry and reestablished his connection to the great outdoors. Watch the video below to hear his story and witness the enduring bond between Brian, his friends, and their love of adventuring.
Return to Dirt is an adaptive motorsports program service of the High Fives Foundation that puts disabled individuals behind the wheel of their own adventure. Since its inception in 2018, 246 participants have attended Return to Dirt camps, piloting off-road vehicles through 7,998 UTV miles of backcountry areas across the country.
