From Military to Mountain Athlete to High Fives Foundation’s Newest Team Member

Welcome Lawrence Green! We’re thrilled to introduce Lawrence Green, the latest addition to the High Fives Foundation family, stepping into the role of Program Experience and Camp Coordinator. Lawrence’s journey to joining our team is nothing short of inspiring, and we couldn’t be happier to have him onboard.

A Texas native, Lawrence’s life took a dramatic turn following a motorcycle accident in March 2015, which resulted in the loss of both his legs above the knee. But as Lawrence would show, challenges are just opportunities in disguise.

In 2016, Lawrence found himself at the Adaptive Training Foundation, participating in the collaborative program, Military to the Mountains, alongside High Fives Foundation. Initially joining as an athlete, Lawrence quickly transitioned into a mentorship role, where he discovered a deep passion for guiding and supporting others on their own journeys to recovery and empowerment.

When the opportunity arose for Lawrence to join our team in a formal capacity, he didn’t hesitate. Leaving behind his corporate job, Lawrence packed his car and trailer, making the move to Reno with unwavering enthusiasm. His dedication and commitment to our mission of empowering individuals through outdoor sports embody the spirit of High Fives Foundation.

Every day, Lawrence brings his unique perspective and unwavering positivity to our team, enriching the experiences of those we serve. Whether it’s helping someone conquer a new challenge on the mountain or providing support and guidance through our programs, Lawrence’s presence is felt profoundly.

“I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to be apart of this incredible team and foundation! Everyday I get to watch people live up to their potential and find freedom through outdoor sports, and that brings me purpose.”
