Inspirational Athlete: Timothy Brown Skis Sugarbush (VT)
Meet Winter Empowerment Athlete – Timothy Brown of Manchester, MA…
A ski patroller at Aspen Snowmass (CO), Tim suffered a fractured C4/C5 vertebra coupled with a contusion of the same area. After finding out about High Fives Foundation from Powder Magazine, Tim got in touch with the Foundation about returning to skiing on the East Coast. With his SCI (spinal cord injury) happening in the winter sports and his desire to make it back to the hill, Tims goal of returning to the mountains with his friends and family fits the mission of the Winter Empowerment Fund.
