The High Fives Foundation’s Community 5 Awards

The High Fives Foundation emphasizes a strong sense of community in all of its program services. Executive Director, Roy Tuscany has witnessed firsthand how important a community can be in the recovery process from a life-altering injury.

To recognize this, we have created the Community Five Awards hosted annually at our formal Silver Tie Gala in Reno, Nevada. This award recognizes five distinguished members of the High Fives community for their positive achievements and their efforts to improve the overall wellbeing of everyone around them.
