Over the years, Greg has spent meaningful time - & collaborated with a lot of groups - in Colorado. On a personal level, he has toured memorable locations like Garden of the Gods (on horseback) and Cave of the Winds in Colorado Springs. On a civic level, he participated in the READ PSA campaign to promote the public library in Aurora. In 2013, he was selected to be one of Aspen Ideas Festival Scholars. On the professional level, the books based on Greg's story (The Silhouette Man & The First Thirty) have been utilized by organizations around Colorado (i.e. USA Mobility, a chapter of Zeta Beta Tau & the local chapter of the National MS Society) as part of their efforts to make a difference in their community. Other groups in Colorado (i.e. local chapters of Special Olympics & Habitat for Humanity) have ordered copies of Greg's Legacy poster for students. SCROLL DOWN TO CONTINUE
