Franklyn

A Jackson woman has been awarded over $58-hundred dollars for injuries she sustained while skiing recreationally in the back country last spring.  The Board of Directors of “The High Fives Foundation – Winter Empowerment Program Service” awarded the money to 24-year-old Sally Francklyn as a result of injuries she sustained March 24th. That is when she tumbled over 800 vertical feet on a 55 degree slope, suffering a skull fracture and brain injury along with other injuries in the fall.  After six weeks, Sally came out of her coma. Although she has a long road to recovery ahead of her, Sally remains a beacon of hope and positivity.  Her goal is to once again live independently and resume her career as a writer and public relations expert. “The High Fives Foundation – Winter Empowerment Program Service” disburses board approved grants to disabled winter action sports athletes participating in winter adaptive sports or to injured athletes recovering from a life altering injury.  In an effort to continue raising funds toward recovery, The “Super Sally Celebration” will take place at the Pink Garter Theatre in Jackson, Wyo. on December 8th.
