We love seeing all of our Out Living It Projects and how our community is adventuring on but some really stand out! Right now, the @kublaikooks are racing in the Mongol Rally across all of Asia and Europe while fundraising for @first_descents! Show us how you’re adventuring on and donate…

It’s Thursday! Have you checked out our redesigned website yet? Awesome photo from one of our 2016 kayaking programs! We still have some open 2017 program spots available so sign up today!

We are so excited to launch our fresh new FD website! It’s all designed so the FD community has the easiest and best digital interaction with us as possible! Let us know what you think – check out the new site at firstdescents.org
