We have been looking for a charity to get behind and support for the last few years. We have helped with quite a few in various ways but haven’t found the one that we feel is a good match until now.
First Descents is committed to curing young adults of the emotional effects of cancer and empowering them to regain control of their lives by experiencing whitewater kayaking and other challenging adventure sports in a safe, fun and supportive environment. With Kathy and myself being avid kayakers we know the power these types of experiences can have on someone’s lives. Much of our determination and success can be directly linked to lessons we have learned high up on cliffs and in raging rivers. We are looking forward to telling the story of this great organization and raising some money for them along the way. Please check out First Descents for more info and how you can get involved.
Here are a few images from the First Descents Gala (It was a hat party!) that was held last Saturday night at the Beaver Creek Ritz-Carlton.
