My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for First Descent, Greenwood Village, CO, USA
I had the idea to start First Descents in 1999. After working on it for 2 years and with the help of many people, we were able to scrape together our first camp. It was then we realized we had something. Kayaking had deeply impacted my life and I believed it could do the same or more for others in need. It did. The participants who attend FD seize every opportunity we present and face the challenge of kayaking head on. By doing so, they are proving they aren't fragile because of their cancer, they're still in control of their life and they meet friends that become family.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
selfless and giving
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
provide adventure therapy free of charge to thousands of young adults with cancer around the world
Ways to make it better...
it never ended
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
meeting the growing demand for the programs
