Matt Reardon is not only a radical skier, he is also a humanitarian and a dedicated musician, dangerous on a guitar. This season, he linked up with Volkl Skis and the High Fives Foundation based out of Truckee in Lake Tahoe, California, for a very special music video. The High Fives Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes who have suffered a life-altering injury while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports community. Formed as a way to “pay-it-forward” by the founder from his own recovery to help injured athletes, the foundation has helped 37 athletes to date since its inception in 2009.

Reardon performed with the Jelly Bread group for this special promotional video. The best part – the Gibson classic custom guitar he is playing is now being auctioned off to benefit High Fives! Bid on and win the Gibson Classic Custom Les Paul | Volkl Skis guitar featured in this video at: gibsonguitar.highfivesfoundation.org

Video filmed and produced by Doxa Studios | Nik David (doxastudios.com). Music, lyrics and copyright belong to recording artists: Matt Reardon and Jelly Bread along with the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation.

Volkl Skis has been the longest supporter of the Foundation, and as we have grown they have increased their support for High Fives, we are so lucky to be working with a company like Volkl and Gibson Guitar,” said Roy Tuscany, President and Founder of  High Fives Non-Profit Foundation. “Plus, how many non-profits get to have a music video produced by Nik David featuring the music of Matt Reardon (w/ Jelly Bread)!”

Matt Reardon and the Jelly Bread group were equally excited to be a part of the project.

“I always love it when a plan comes together. I’m a huge fan of the High Fives crew and all they are doing for those in need in the Winter sports community,” Reardon told The Ski Channel. “I’ve had this riff idea on a guitar for years and never had the right lyrics to match, until I met High Fives athlete Grant Korgan. Jelly Bread is one of my favorite bands and they brought great vibes and energy to the project. We were honored to team up for such a great cause. Hats off to Volkl Skis and Gibson guitars for making it happen!”
