Our Mission

First Descents provides free life-changing outdoor adventures for young adults (ages 18-39) impacted by cancer.

Our Story

First Descents’ goal is to bring the healing power of adventure to young adults living with and surviving cancer.  Through destination week-long programs and local multi and single-day programs, First Descents empowers participants to adventure beyond their diagnosis, defy their cancer, and connect with others doing the same.
