For the Past 4 years Hula Networks has participated and donated to the Tough Mudder event for the Wounded Warrior Project. You may have even seen some of our Hula tribe Videos.
This year we are taking it to the next level. We have teamed up with the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation based in Truckee, CA . High Fives is an official 501c.3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes that have suffered a life altering injury while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports community. Founded by Roy Tuscany, the Tahoe based organization was formed as a way to pay-it-forward . To date the foundation has helped 43 athletes since High Fives inception in 2009.
This event is particularly special to me as I personally suffered a life altering injury. In 1992 I was in a serious car accident with my father coming home from a downhill ski race at Mammoth that put me in a wheelchair for over a year. Although that accident was probably the worst thing that has ever happened to me it is also the best thing that has happened to me as it help me become who I am today. The opportunity to help others that are in the same shoes as I was when I was 17 years old means the world to me. Every dollar raised by the Hula Tribe will go directly to other winter sport athletes with Traumatic Brain Injury and spinal cord injuries. Please help me and the Hula Tribe as we work toward the goal of raising $60,000 for the High Fives foundation. If you love skiing, or have kids take a look at what High Fives is doing to educate the young kids about how important helmets are and avalanche dangers to insure their safety as they continue to push the limits.
I have a personal goal of raising $8000 so every donation counts and together we can prove that anything is possible.
