WhatWouldPeterDo.org proudly partners with SOS Outreach to serve underprivileged youth with mentorship and leadership in the great outdoors.
Peter was lovingly and broadly known for his capacity to bring people together. He possessed a belief system that together we can create a better world. And that children are the sacred thought leaders of the future. It was a vision and passion that drove all his efforts.
As a youth he became a top ranked champion at the Jr. Olympics and will always be remembered as a world-class skier. His passion for living an outdoors lifestyle led him to the University of Denver where he earned a degree in Philosophy and later became deeply rooted in the Colorado business community.
Most recently Peter would serve as the "networking czar" for the Boulder Colorado based Van Heyst Group. A title that perfectly encapsulated his gift to make everyone he met feel special and foster thought leadership across a spectrum of innovation, humanity, and sustainability.
His spirit, enthusiasm, and compassion will be deeply missed by those who were fortunate enough to know the Legend of Peter Grant Johnson. However, his legacy and core values shall live on through SOS Outreach. By joining us in the 17th Annual Talons Challenge, held this year on Saturday, February 22nd on Beaver Creek Mountain, you are keeping Peter's spirit alive.
SOS is a youth development nonprofit combining many of Peter's own passions. SOS works with at-risk youth, teaching them new adventure sports, including skiing and snowboarding, and encouraging them to give back to their communities through service learning projects. Your donation to the Peter Johnson Legacy Fund will be used to provide scholarships so more Colorado youth can participate in SOS's transformational programs, helping them to gear up for life. We look forward to celebrating Peter's life while supporting youth on the slopes during this year's Talons Challenge!
