Empowement fund: the empowerment fund provides resources and inspiration to those who suffer a life-altering injury. Life-altering injuries are injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputation or other mobility-limiting injuries that occurred in an athlete's lifetime. The resources and inspiration we provide come in the form of board- approved grant funding aid to services providers in nine funding categories: living expenses, insurance, health, travel, High Fives healing network, adaptive equipment, winter equipment, and "stoke" (positive energy, outlook, attitude). In 2021 High Fives helped 478 people return to the sports they love accross 43 different states. Since the establishment of High Fives, over 500 people have been served,6 million funds have been disbursed and over 1,000 grants have been awarded. Military to the mountain: m2m is a High Fives program service demonstrating our deep sense of appreciation for the men and women who serve our country in the military - specifically for those veterans who have suffered life-altering injuries in the name of loyalty to america. The service exists as a collective effort between High Fives Foundation, adaptive training Foundation, squaw valley alpine meadows, achieve tahoe and ciry of reno adaptive. Injured us military veterans are provided the opportunity to train at a 9-week program at adaptive training Foundation in dallas, Texas and ciry of reno adaptive in reno, Nevada preparing for a week of skiing at squaw valley alpine meadows, instructed by achieve tahoe adaptive ski program - 100% fueled and inspired by the High Fives Foundation. Adaptive camps: High Fives hosts adaptive camps throughout the year for our athletes to participate in. Adaptive camps serve as a way for our athletes to try out new sports that they may eventually want to pursue in the future. In 2021 High Fives hosted 13 camps and had 118 participants with 45 first time experiences.
B.a.s.i.c.s. : the b.a.s.i.c.s. (being aware safe in critical sutuations) program was created as a way to reach young athletes to promote smart decision making in the mountains.
