First Descents offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors a free outdoor adventure experience designed to empower them to climb, paddle and surf beyond their diagnosis, defy their cancer, reclaim their lives and connect with others doing the same. First Descents programs range anywhere from two days to one week and any young adult (18-39) with cancer is eligible regardless of physical challenges, diagnosis or prognosis.
In 2013, over 623 young adults through programs in 15 states and 3 countries were served. It is our goal to serve 1,000 this year. There are over 150,000 young adults across the country that could benefit from our programs and that number rises by the hour. With your help, we can offer a life changing First Descents experience to more young adults this year.
