My friend Mike over at Verb Cabin just launched the trailer for a new film coming out this fall called "Places to Go," about adventure photographer Jim Harris and his remarkable recovery from a spinal cord injury. Jim worked with the High Fives Foundation, a Tahoe-area non-profit that helps mountain sports athletes suffering from life-altering injuries. I'm a big fan of the work that High Fives does and I've seen far too many people I know and respect go through really traumatic injuries and rely on the support and network that High Fives offers.
I also recently wrote a story about High Fives, which came out in a magazine called Out Living It. You can read about some of the people who High Fives has helped, as well as their evolving mission to help prevent these devastating injuries from happening in the first place, over on my Writing page.
