THE STORY:

Phil Hoban's Story:

On January 1, 2011, my son Phil suffered a burst fracture of his C-5 vertebrae while fulfilling his life passion, skiing. The injury initially left Phil an incomplete quadriplegic.I’ll never forget the call from Phil that afternoon, the operation the following day, the uncertainly of him ever moving again. 24 hours after the operation the medical staff moved Phil to an upright position and it was readily apparent that his muscle memory from the neck down vanished. Despite the initial setback Phil was unwilling to accept defeat and through his determination, tenacity and dream to once again ski, he decided to conquer this daunting challenge.

Enter, the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation...

These guys are astonishing and if anyone out there wants some inspiration, talk to these gents. They have lived the highs and lows of a spinal cord injury. Thoughout Phil’s arduous recovery the High Fives Foundation team was there every step of the way. Providing financial support, facilities, etc. but the game changer was the inspirational support and the “can do” attitude they instilled in my son. The culmination of all their positive vibes and efforts made this story’s ending a happy one. On 2 January 2012, Phil went skiing, 1 year after breaking is neck. Can I have a Miracle encore please!!!


Despite all the phenomenal progress, Phil has miles to go, hurdles to jump, obstacles to overcome.

Roy and team, we are eternally indebted for your tireless work, commitment to assist your clients and overall professionalism. Thank you

My Story:

Most of you know that I’ve been a triathlete for several years but I’ve never challenged myself beyond the ½ iron man. Matter of fact, I swore I would never signup for a full IM. I guess the old adage is applicable, never say never. You got it, in 2 weeks I’ll be participating in my first IM to raise money for the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation.
