With the help of some well-known friends, the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, which aids injured winter sports athletes in their road to recovery, has been busy advancing the Foundation’s mission.

Most recently, Olympic Gold Medalist Julia Mancuso, Squaw Valley CEO Andy Wirth and Squaw Valley showed an amazing amount of support as they joined forces and donated $5,450 to the organization as part of an auction fundraising event. Coupled with the $4,550 of additional funds raised, the event yielded a total of $10,000 for the cause! Very impressive!

Other recent initiatives include, High Fives Co-Founder Roy Tuscany successfully High Fiving 9,325 different people at the San Francisco Ski & Snowboard Festival and a large donation from funds raised by injured UCSD student Randy Ewing who put on a double movie premiere at the UCSD Campus.
