Matt Melancon was deployed in Afghanistan back in 2011, when his units Humvee drove over an IED. The explosion came through the floor and Matt’s feet and legs sustained most of the injuries. Matt went through two years of limb salvage surgeries before he finally decided to have both of his feet amputated. Matt is now a bilateral amputee boarder cross racer.

Matt came to Truckee to receive training at the CR Johnson healing center with #JackTheTrainer, as well as at Woodward with pro snowboarder John Jackson.

My Sponsorship from The High Fives Foundation means so much to me, because they don't just believe in everything I've done, they believe in where I'm going!
