GoPro speaks to Roy Tuscany and Trevor Kennison about the High Fives Foundation, which helps severely injured skiers get back into the sport.
In this doc, we hear the stories of skiers who have picked up serious spinal cord injuries whilst skiing. For these guys, it was devastating to not be able to walk and not be able to take part in their favourite pastime. But the High Fives Foundation looks to help skiers like this learn how to ski again. Using the whale tail ski, even people who can’t walk can get back into skiing.
But the foundation is about more than just skiing. When people suffer serious spinal cord injuries, it can be very easy to slip into a depressive state of mind. Being wheelchair bound can affect your life in many negative ways, so the social and emotional support that the High Fives Foundation offers is vitally important. It’s an inspiring story that shows us just how determined some people can be. GoPro have really blown us away with this incredibly moving doc.
