Sink putts for a great cause; sign up for High Fives’ charity golf tournament
BY THACHER STONE/
The High Fives Non-Profit Foundation will be venturing to the Rocky Mountains on September 1 for its first annual High Fives Foundation Colorado Charity Golf Tournament. Presented by GoPro, Phunkshun Wear, Kind Design and Outdoor Technologies, the always entertaining crew will be swinging their clubs at Vail Golf Club as a fundraising event for the Foundation’s Empowerment Fund, which provides grant assistance to injured action sports athletes.
To date, High Fives’ Empowerment Fund has assisted 82 athletes from twenty states in eight respective funding categories, which include: living expenses, insurance, travel, health, healing network, adaptive equipment, winter equipment, programs and stoke.
To make things even sweeter, High Fives wants you to join ’em on the links. With multiple tee times still available, the cost to participate in the tournament is $500 per team of four, or $150 per solo golfer. All proceeds will go to the High Fives Foundation to facilitate the recovery process of injured winter action sports athletes.
