In partnership with the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation and the VF Foundation, First Descents launched HERO RECHARGE – a nationwide series of outdoor adventure programs for healthcare professionals 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.
