Peter's Photos of
Journey to Everest: The Unsung Heroes of Servant
Celebrate and Inspire
Hardworking Human Service Professionals
Peter inspires unsung heroes in the human services by getting to the bottom of an unforgettable journey to the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. He didn't make it to the top of the roof of the world. The truth of life is that not everyone makes it to the pinnacle of the world’s greatest mountain or becomes the boss of a great organization. This is the story about the rest of us, the hardworking professionals behind the scenes who succeed when others succeed. Even those who achieve great heights like Sir Edmund Hillary have their team of nameless unsung heroes (350 Sherpa porters helped him be the first to the summit!). This presentation honors those dedicated people who trust that in some small way we can make a bigger difference together by supporting people through the ups and downs of their “everyday Everest” challenges. This presentation is a celebration of life’s journey and those health professionals who dedicate their time and talent in the service of others whether for a reason, a season or a lifetime.T
