We are excited to announce a new chapter for our community of fundraisers and supporters of First Descents (FD). Over the years, we have collectively participated in a host of incredibly fun and meaningful running, cycling, swimming and paddling events to support our mission through Team FD.
First Descents is redefining what it means to participate in the adventure and creativity that supports the young adults impacted by cancer who we serve. What was traditionally known as Team First Descents (TeamFD) will transition into the greater Out Living It Project (OLI Project)– a platform that harnesses the power of our community and illustrates the impact of our shared efforts.
There are countless ways to contribute your passion and energy to the Out Living It Project, whether you would like to join one of the FD Team Events like the Leadville 100 MTB or plan your own fashion show benefit!
Please read on to learn more about the OLI Project, and visit our new homepage: firstdescents.org/out–living–
If you are currently fundraising for First Descents, your current page will be able to accept donations through March 31. If you plan to continue fundraising after this date, you will need to transfer into our new platform. Please email [email protected] for further instructions.
WHAT is it? The Out Living It Project is where the First Descents community fosters a spirit of adventure, creativity, and philanthropy. OLI Projects are unique ways to fundraise for First Descents, and range from marathons to back yard barbecues to meditation challenges.
WHO can start an OLI Project? Anyone can create a project of his or her own design! All you need is a little creativity and spirit of adventure.
HOW do I join the OLI Project? It‘s easy! You can either join a project or start your own. See a list of FD hosted projects at the bottom of the OLI Project homepage, OR start aproject of your own design!
WHY start an OLI Project? All funds raised through the Out Living It Project support First Descents’ mission to provide life-changing outdoor adventure programs for young adults impacted by cancer.
