CNN Heroes

First Descents Founder Brad Ludden was honored in 2016 as a Top 10 CNN Hero. Since then, First Descents has partnered with CNN Heroes to tell powerful digital stories about our local adventure programs, our program expansion into serving young adults living with multiple sclerosis, and the nationwide launch of Hero Recharge, our free adventure programs for healthcare workers on the COVID-19 frontlines.
