Meet #HighFivesAthlete Meg Procter (Athlete #203) from Vail, CO

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

“Don’t be afraid to be great,” are words that Meg often passes along to others. Those exact words, and attitude, coupled with a High Fives Foundation grant for $2,580 to be used toward personal training and a gym membership will help put this life-altering setback behind her.

After a season of poor snow conditions, Meg Procter and some friends were excited to go out on a powder day at Breckenridge Resort. Looking to pass a friend on the slopes, Meg took a turn and found herself airborne. Upon landing, she knew things were not ok.

After extraction, Meg awoke in a local medical center where she was told that she had suffered a burst fracture of her L3 vertebrae. Bone fragments had impinged her spinal cord, causing partial paralysis.

Meg plans to recover muscularly and become a stronger athlete all around. She understands that the numbness she is currently experiencing might never go away, so she is very focused on getting stronger.

The High Fives Foundation supports injured outdoor action sports Athletes through grant funding to be used towards reaching their recovery goals. Since the Foundation’s January 2009 inception, the Empowerment Program Service has assisted 212 Athletes from 31 states in nine respective funding categories: Living expenses, insurance, travel, health, healing network, adaptive equipment, winter equipment, programs and “stoke” (positive energy, outlook and attitude).
