High Fives Foundation presents Cody Walker’s recovery story
The HighFivesFoundation works tirelessly to provide support for athletes who sustain life-altering injuries. High Fives’ efforts go largely unnoticed, so when we encounter a video like this one—shedding a bit of light on the Foundation’s impact—it’s quickly deemed a “must-share.” On March 1, 2013, snowboarder Cody Walker suffered fractures to his cervical vertebrae, the injury resulting from a fall in the terrain park. Thanks to Cody’s determination to rehabilitate, and with the aid of grants from the High Fives Foundation, Cody has come a long way in his recovery.
