First Descents has opened their 2012 programs. Apply for adventure.
Not familiar with First Descents? Well, you should be. First Descents
offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors (ages 18 to 39) a free week-long outdoor adventure experience designed to enable them to climb, paddle and surf beyond their diagnosis, defy their cancer, reclaim their lives and connect with others doing the same. Their outdoor adventure challenges are designed to push your limits and make you face you fears. In return you will regain the confidence and self-efficacy that cancer often takes away. Don't feel intimidated. First Descents realizes that we are all individuals and the adventures will be tailored to your experiences/abilities and they are there to help make sure you reach your week's goals. Want to learn more? Check out the First Descents website and watch the video below.
OK, you have seen the adventure, now go get it. Have Fun,
