Inspirational Athlete: Ben Hulin
Ben was injured September 24, 2006 in a motorcycle accident which left me with a T 5-6 complete Spinal Cord Injury. Ben spent 5 weeks in inpatient therapy and discovered wheelchair racing about 5 months after his injury. He soon found the mountains and the ability to ski and has not looked back. Skiing with his family, while challenging himself has been a blessing to Ben, and looks to keep going strong.
The Winter Empowerment Fund has provided Ben Hulin with program and travel assistance in his pursuit of following his dreams in adaptive ski racing.
Ben emailed the Foundation with the following note: “Just a mid season thank you for the financial support that the High Fives Foundation has given me this year. I just got back from Canada this week after competing in two Downhill and two Super G races. Your support has helped me train and compete and given me the opportunity to strive for my goals.”
