Thank you to Fox 44 News of Colchester, VT for the great coverage of the 2nd Annual High Fives on Tap event on Sunday, October 27 at the Vermont Ale House!
High Five to the 175 attendees helped the Foundation raise over $8,000.00 in support of the Winter Empowerment Fund.
The Winter Empowerment Fund is a program service that provides support for alternative healing and therapies, rehabilitative and adaptive equipment to athletes that suffer a life altering injury while pursuing a dream in the winter action sports community. Funds are allocated to assist disabled athletes in the recovery process and help achieve goals in the sports they love.
To date, the Winter Empowerment Fund has assisted 51 athletes from 17 states in nine respective funding categories which include: living expenses, insurance, travel, health, healing network, adaptive equipment, winter equipment, programs and stoke (positive energy, outlook and attitude).
