Seek Challenge. Tell the World. Live It.

TEAM FIRST DESCENTS is a lifestyle. Being a part of TEAM FIRST DESCENTS is more than the accomplishment of running a marathon or climbing a mountain. It’s about ‘mile 26.3′- the fears you’ve overcome, the changes you’ve made, the FD family you’ve become a part of. Its about honoring the FIRST DESCENTS culture of challenge, passionate living, and rad experience for the rest of your life.

Your fundraising efforts will change the life of a young adult cancer fighter or survivor and embracing challenge will change YOUR life. Find power you didn’t know you had. Become a source of inspiration and a force for extreme positive change in your life and the lives of others.

So choose your own challenge- anything that pushes your boundaries is welcome, or join one of our core events and get OutLivingIt!

Registration Options

Start a Team: You and your FD camp family climbing Kilimanjaro next summer? You and some friends want to run a marathon together? You and your dad going to cycle a total of 10,000 miles in 2014? CREATE A TEAM! Once you create this team, you can have your partners in Challenge join as well and compete to see who can make the sweetest fundraising page. Don’t lose, Captain.

Join a Team: Seen a Team First Descents Challenge you’re totally into? Join the team! They probably need your good looks and charm to boost their team fundraising, so you’re just in time. Just make your own page linked with their team and let them know who’s boss!

Register as Individual: You know what Challenge means to you and only you? We LOVE that you’re such a force for extreme positive change in your life and a young adult cancer fighter/survivor’s. Make an individual page to tell the world what challenges YOU and why you’re going to succeed.


Pick a TEAM FIRST DESCENTS Challenge- either a TEAM FIRST DESCENTS Core Event listed below OR anything else that challenges you- and then ask your friends, family and entire network to support you and FIRST DESCENTS in honor of your TEAM FIRST DESCENTS Challenge. TEAM FIRST DESCENTS has entries into the following events, so please go to event pages for information on fundraising minimums and event registration!
