In partnership with the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation, The VF Foundation, and #StartSmall, First Descents launched HERO RECHARGE – a nationwide series of outdoor adventure programs for healthcare professionals (ages 18-45) on the frontlines of COVID-19.

Healthcare workers are experiencing significant stress and trauma as they address the most daunting public health crisis of our lifetimes. It’s time we care for those who care for us by providing trauma-informed adventure programs aimed at respite and renewal.

Special thanks to the Samberg Family Foundation, BasePoint Foundation, Offield Family Foundation, First Responders Children’s Foundation, and Caring for Denver Foundation for their leadership support of HERO RECHARGE.

“Since the start of the COVID crisis I’ve started on anxiety medicine and haven’t been able to sleep. This opportunity sounds like a perfect chance to connect with people outside of my hospital, share stories, and heal.”
