On December 27, 2012 Max Elles hit a hidden water bar while snowboarding at Killington Resort (VT). Immediately, the promising young snowboarder knew his back was broken. He then spent the next 43 days in two hospitals, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical and Spaulding Rehab Hospital. Moving forward, Max’s goals are to regain as much strength, balance, and mobility as possible.
In 2012, the High Fives Foundation awarded Max a grant through the Winter Empowerment Fund for Personal Training, Massage and Acupuncture.
October Winter Empowerment Grant for Max Elles: $1,856.58 (Healing Network – 6 Neurokenesis Pilates sessions with Alejandra of Body Wellness Hawaii, 2 Neurokenesis Pilates sessions with Diego of Neurokenesis Pilates, 2 Bodywork sessions with Kazuko of Body Wellness Hawaii and air fare to Hawaii: $1,856.58)
