The mission of First Descents is to help young adults impacted by cancer live beyond their diagnosis and our Out Living It mantra resonates through our entire community of alumni and supporters. With our mantra, Out Living It, we hope to inspire an entire community of alumni and supporters to live with passion and purpose, mindfulness and compassion.
On September 11th, we are asking our community to join us for an hour of meditation, yoga, or just simply quiet reflection all in the name of living consciously in the present. We invite you to take time on your own or join us in one of our studio locations nationwide for a donated yoga/mediation class to raise money for First Descents and begin this day, of all days, with mindfulness and intention.
Check for participating studios near you!
*Class are a donation based class with proceeds benefitting First Descents. If you unable to donate in person at a studio, we encourage you to consider donating online to help the next young adult impacted by cancer attend a free, life-changing outdoor adventure program.
