High Fives Athletes Breaking Barriers and Beating Goals

High Five Foundation staff would like to extend our congratulations and a big pat on the back to these High Fives Athletes for accomplishing their goals while beating the heat.

We know that all 414 of our Athletes are continually striving to improve themselves, and being part of the Ohana means overcoming adversity and challenges with hard work and determination. We would like to give these 4 Athletes some extra special recognition for managing to keep cool and push through barriers in their pursuit of continual improvement.

Athlete Name: Bill Travers 

Athlete Number: 284

Location: California

Injury: SCI T10

Belt Goal: My first goal with the Mako off-road handcycle is to make the first ever handcycle ascent up the famed North Rim Trail.

Thanks to you and to all the folks at High Fives!  I’m back on the trail with my own full-suspension off-road handcycle. This bike gets me onto ripper singletrack with my three sons and onto local hikes to high points and lookouts with my wife.  A huge door has opened to enjoying the backcountry again.  I’m blown away by a combination of gratitude for the gift, awe for capabilities of the machine, and inspiration for the trails and routes that I can do again.  Just blown away!
Thank you,
– Bill
