Meet #HighFivesAthlete Jay Rawe (Athlete #206) from Bradenton, FL

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

Jay has worked at the CR Johnson Healing Center prior to becoming an Athlete of the organization, but a June grant welcomed him to the High Fives Family. Jay will continue to work with CR Johnson Healing Center trainers’ Natalie and Chris so that he can continue on his positive recovery path and get back to the sports he loves.

Jay Rawe was involved in a 2014 BASE jumping accident when a jump went wrong off the Perrine Bridge in Idaho. Jay became tangled in his chute, and upon hitting the ground from 486 feet, he was very lucky to only suffer an L1 burst fracture, causing temporary paralysis at L5.

Jay works very hard in the gym, and he wants to build enough strength back so he can ditch his AFO foot braces.

This grant will help me to get the physical therapy I need to get my legs kicking again. I am currently working on strengthening my quads, calves, glutes, hamstrings and hip muscles.
