America Slaps Up A High-Five For A Good Cause

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The third Thursday in April is National High Five Day — #NH5D — and this year the event aims at benefiting arts and athletics for children suffering from chronic illnesses.

Started by a group of college students back in 2002, the day encourages everyone to high five friends, co-workers and strangers.

This year #NH5D is launching the #High5Challenge to raise money to provide arts and athletics to kids with chronic illnesses. For more info about the charities involved with this event check out nationalhighfiveday.com.
