Help knock out cancer by supporting, attending, or fighting at Haymakers for Hope! H4H is rumbling in the Rockies again in 2019, and First Descents is proud to be a charity partner. Interested in competing? The H4H team will help you train for and face off in a charity boxing event to raise funds for FD. Since its initial event in 2011, Haymakers for Hope has raised more than $10 million for cancer research, awareness, survivorship and care. The organization has transformed 580 ordinary participants into extraordinary amateur fighters. Last year’s “Rumble in the Rockies” participants raised more than $210,000 to knock out cancer.
