Over the past two decades, one lesson we’ve witnessed in action is that it’s not about what happens to you, but how you respond in the face of adversity that says more about you than anything. Whether it’s a cancer diagnosis or a global pandemic, the path we choose to take from here will help define us. At First Descents, we choose adventure and community.
FD Ball guests can choose their own adventure and join us for an entire weekend of events before donning your own hat for a night of powerful stories, moving films, delicious meals, and an epic dance party to cap it all off.
