In celebration of our 20th anniversary, please consider a $20 donation to support First Descents and extend the healing power of adventure to young adults impacted by cancer and other serious health conditions.
The Out Living It Fest is First Descents’ very own multi-day, multi-sport mountain festival designed to celebrate the healing power of adventure and community! We couldn’t celebrate 20 years without a massive Out Living It celebration so on July 16-19, 2020 we’re gathering hundreds of supporters, alumni, and friends in Buena Vista, Colorado for one epic weekend!
There’ll be rafting, mountain biking, kayaking, rock climbing, live music, campfires, camping, and more! Similar to a FD program, all activities will be made accessible and adaptive for the young adults impacted by cancer in our care. So make plans to join us for the ultimate adventure weekend!
