CR Johnson Birthday Rafting Trip | A Look At The CR Johnson Healing Center

August 15th, 2011 by

 Local professional skier CR Johnson was born on August 10, 1983 and enjoyed an amazing career in the freeskiing community until his passing in 2010. His incredible energy led to a legacy of positivity and a sense of community that is embodied in the new CR Johnson Healing Center. It is with this enduring positivity that CR carried, that the High Fives Foundation held a rafting trip to celebrate his birthday on the Truckee River with IRIE Rafting Co. and 45 close friends, family members and fans. Following the (Boca to Floriston, CA) stretch of rafting, all that participated made their way to the CR Johnson Healing Center in Truckee, CA for a soft opening of the new center. All in attendance received a catered lunch from Full Belly Deli and a CR Johnson Memorial Fund “Heart of a Lion” t-shirt.

The High Fives Non-Profit Foundation helps oversee the CR Johnson Memorial Fund which provides funding for alternative modalities of healing for individuals suffering from traumatic brain injury so they can “love the life they live.” On June 1, 2011 the High Fives Foundation re-located their office to 10775 Pioneer Trail, Truckee, CA. The new space has three rooms in which there is space for Winter Empowerment Fund – Highlighted Athletes, and those involved with the foundation to work out at their comfort level in a setting conducive to healing. With an overwhelming sense of encouragement and positivity, the CR Johnson Healing Center will inspire greatness. Additionally, the fourth office space will serve as the nerve center for all High Fives Non-Profit Foundation work, business and creative processes. The CR Johnson Healing Center has a room with an Infrared-Sauna, a room for healing (including acupuncture and physical therapy) and a work out room replete with the best in adaptive friendly exercise modalities and equipment. Commemorative mural paintings at the CR Johnson Healing Center were completed by local artist, Andy Spots and feature amazing imagery and quotes that invoke the powerful messages that CR Johnson communicated to the world through his words and his skiing.

Mission statement: “The CR Johnson Healing Center provides resources for athletes in recovery from sport related injuries and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Resources include: physical therapy, acupuncture, massage and more.”

The High Fives Foundation would like to thank: The Johnson Family, IRIE Rafting Co., Full Belly Deli, Andy Spots and Unofficial Networks!
