Daniel Petermann

Daniel Petermann | Chicago

Daniel sustained a T12 incomplete, L1 burst fracture & T12-L3 fusion dropping a cliff underneath the infamous chair 5 in Vail. It was his first run on a powder day during one of the snowiest weeks in years.
Through funding for physical therapy, mental therapy, and acupuncture, High Fives provides the funds necessary to allow Daniel to partake in the outdoor activities he loves and with friends and family. Daniel believes that High Fives gives hope and shows the possibilities of a great life after a life-changing injury. One of the values that rings deeply inside him is to “never stop exploring life” and he strives to help others pursue this too!

“Set the gearshift to the high gear of your soul!”
