How did you get involved in H54H?
I was asked by Mark to assist in writing for and helping edit the newsletter and other items.

Why do you enjoy being a High Fiver?
I enjoy being a High Fiver because I get to work alongside my peers in my own community to help people with an unfathomable challenge. It means a lot to me to be a part of something that honestly will and does make an impact.

What does it mean to you to be a High Fiver?
Being a High Fiver means I am part of an organization where I can directly see the impact of our hard work. I know every dollar raised goes towards support and advocacy.

What is your favorite H54H event that you have participated in and why?
I am still on the fence as I am fairly new – I have yet to attend all the events High Fives hosts throughout the year.
