In honor of Truckee local CR Johnson shown here in his handmade jacket, Riverside Studios is holding the annual Lion Heart Show to raise money for the CR Johnson Healing Center on March 4, 2016, from 4pm to 8pm.
The show will feature local artists using 10”x10” panels of wood to create masterpieces in any medium. Each piece will be available for purchase for $100.00 per panel on a first come first serve basis. A percentage of sales will go to the CR Johnson Healing Center which is managed by the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation that provides resources for athletes in recovery from sport related injuries. Resources include physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, personal training and more.
If you cannot make it, please donate today here.
A Truckee native, CR loved skiing, his family, friends and community. A natural athlete, he excelled at skiing and took the free skiing movement to new heights in his trademark unassuming style, grace and ease. His poetic prowess on the mountain inspired everyone, even those who didn’t know him. Now he’s inspired an art event, and you’re invited.

CR Johnson Healing Center
On August 10th, 2011, the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation opened the CR Johnson Healing Center as a program service to commemorate the professional skier and beloved Truckee resident’s birthday. The Healing Center will provide High Fives – Highlighted Athletes with a space in which they can continue to work toward their goals in a private, “no questions asked” facility.
The CR Johnson Healing Center is replete with equipment that is used by healing professionals that High Fives works with. This equipment includes: A bar for practicing The BAR Method, spin bikes, Bosu balls, TRX strap systems, Swiss balls, foam rollers, weighted balls. Workout routines have been developed to ensure that Highlighted Athletes get a safe and effective workout. Along with the Healing Center’s workout facility the Johnson family has generously donated an infrared healing sauna.
The CR Johnson Healing Center is also home to the Wellness Room, in which local area healing professionals will be working out of and donating part of their proceeds to High Fives Foundation, and it’s newest program service, the Healing Center. Andy Spotts has painted murals of CR Johnson in both the workout facility and Wellness Room so that our friend can look over Highlighted Athletes while they work toward their recovery.
