2021 Multiple Sclerosis Programs are live! Learn more about our upcoming adventures for young adults living with MS.
Looking to add some socially distant adventure to your summer? First Descents has you covered!
Recruit your friends, create a team, and join us virtually on July 24-25th for the Out Living It Relay! You’ll team up with your friends, family & coworkers to field a virtual relay team of runners, each committed to running, walking, or skipping their way to 21km over 48hrs. Why 21km? We’re celebrating FD’s 21st year of serving Young Adults in need!
You’ll track yourself using Strava, and then post your runs in the Out Living It Relay Strava Group!
Want to really up your game? Try the Ultra distance (it’s double!) or grab a headlamp and some reflective clothing to safely hit the road/trail at night. Or add in some COSTUMES, creative rest stops and camping!
While fundraising is optional, we’re challenging each participant to meet FD’s 20 for 20 Challenge! Have 20 people donate $20+ to your OLI Relay fundraising page!
