Meet #HighFivesAthlete Brady Donahue (Athlete #200) from Livermore, ME

In June 2018, the High Fives Foundation disbursed $74,539.86 to 24 Athlete’s across North America.

Brady is currently working on grip strength and functional training to make his day-to-day easier. He’s had a lot of success thus far at Project Walk, and plans to continue working there. The $4,300 grant provided by the High Fives Foundation to be used toward personal training at the Canton, MA facility (Project Walk) will help him accomplish his recovery goals.

In March 2017, young Brady Donahue endured a snowmobile accident in Northern Maine that left him paralyzed from the waist down. When he first arrived at the hospital, he couldn’t move anything below his neck. After stabilization at the small hospital, he was airlifted to a nearby trauma center, where he had his first surgery within hours of his accident. He then, a week later, had a second surgery. He was left with blood pressure, respiratory and breathing issues.

Brady’s current goals revolve around recovery, so that he can eventually get back on his snowmobile. He wants to continue to train at Project Walk in New Hampshire so that he can get strong enough to hopefully get back on a sled this upcoming winter.

Working with the High Fives Foundation will take some of the financial burden off, so I can concentrate my focus solely on my recovery.
