BENEFITING: FIRST DESCENTS

Jennifer Heminger

THE STORY:

"I would like to dedicate my yoga class donations to First Descents because it jumps starts the lives of young people(ages 18-39)whose lives have been side-lined with cancer. I know because was a participant in the first ever 40+ program. Hearing the words, "It's cancer." is something that definitely flipped my canoe upside down, as a mother of three. First Descents taught me how to accept challenges, and JUST KEEP ON PADDLING. Metaphor and motto: Out Living It!

The First Descents program is a donation-based, non-profit, offering outdoor adventure therapy, and for each $1,000 of fundraising efforts, another cancer patient will be able to experience a one-week transformative experience, checking one's limitations at the threshold of nature, and tapping into an inner strength in a supportive, healing environment. Participants immerse themselves in whitewater kayaking, surfing, or rock climbing. The mental, physical and emotional release in one week of these outdoor programs is amazing. " - Lori MacKenzie, yoga instructor teaching & fundraising through Integrative Healing
