If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve seen some of the amazing things our partner First Descents does for those with cancer. They offer 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. Their programs are all over the country and range anywhere from one day to one week. Any young adult with cancer is eligible regardless of physical challenges, diagnosis or prognosis.
They are currently hosting one of our bean tubes from The Bean Tube Experiment, and we recently spent at day at one of their rock climbing camps in Estes Park, CO learning more about what they do and the young adults involved in their program.
We’re dedicated to helping raise funds for the organization and to help pay for the amazing camps they hold year round. So stay tuned for more information on our partnership and how you can get involved.
