Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.
First Descents is a non-profit organization that provides life-changing adventures to young adults impacted by cancer. It was started by professional whitewater kayaker Brad Ludden. Ludden, despite concerns from friends and family, started his First Descents journey with no formal training. This organization has seen its fair share of challenges but has served over 3000 participants in its history. Find more from First Descents here, and #OutLivingIt here.
