Meet #HighFivesAthlete Nolan Trowe (Athlete #114) from Truckee, CA

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

While in Truckee, Nolan worked tirelessly on his recovery with the knowledgeable trainers at the CR Johnson Healing Center. Now a grad student at NYU, the $1,000 High Fives grant for a commuter bike will help him navigate the large campus and continue to maintain his admirable GPA.

In 2016, Truckee local Nolan Trowe suffered an incomplete spinal cord injury while cliff jumping with friends at Emerald Pools in Northern California. After hard work, Nolan walks with assistance and continues to inspire, as he’s recently moved to New York City to pursue his Masters Degree at New York University.
