(Truckee, California, November 3, 2016) — The High Fives Foundation is awarding Truckee resident Nolan Trowe an Empowerment Grant with necessary sessions of acupuncture, massage at the CR Johnson Healing Center and physical therapy with SpineNevada in Reno, Nevada.
These therapies will assist him in the recovery from a spinal cord injury he received cliff jumping at Emerald Pools near Lake Tahoe in June of this year.
After lots of therapy and personal training, Trowe has started walking with assistance with the help of Head Trainer Jack Powell at the CR Johnson Healing Center.
“Nolan works out at the Healing Center every day towards his recovery,” said Roy Tuscany, executive director of the High Fives Foundation. “This kind of determination is absolutely necessary, and I can tell he’s going to continue making impressive gains in his recovery.”
“My long term goal is to walk as close to normal again,” Said Trowe. “I would also like to help counsel people who have similar injuries to the one I sustained.”
