First Descent
July 27, 2009

Seeing firsthand the approach that First Descents takes to young adult cancer, via kayaking as adventure therapy, has revolutionized my thinking on how an organization can use adventure sports to give back and how effective that gift can be to each and every participant and volunteer!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the enthusiasm and support of past participants for First Descents.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to bring this experience to as many people as possible.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the relationships that I have been able to develop.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

world class instructors, proffessionals, and humanitarians.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change 1,000,000 lives

Ways to make it better...

I would have been able to give a million dollars.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

fundraising for the future growth of the organization.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the word needs to get out, it will get out eventually and you could be a part of that! Join the cause!
