THE STORY:

Dear friends, family, generous acquaintances, internet strangers, and/or whoever will listen:

I'm so excited to participate in the NYC Marathon once again, and in support of such an awesome organization. First Descents provides free outdoor adventures for cancer survivors and those battling cancer, allowing them to push their limits and reclaim their lives. I found out about this wonderful charity through my dear lifelong friend and survivor of Hodgkin's lymphoma, Elizabeth Moroney, whose life was personally changed by First Descents. Cancer has affected all of us in one way or another, and as long as cancer remains a thing in this world, we need organizations like First Descents to help our loved ones move forward and heal. It's my goal to raise $3500 buckaroos, so any little contribution you can make would truly make a difference and also warm my heart!

Thank you so much, and please read more about First Descents below!

FIRST DESCENTS wrote -

First Descents provides life-changing outdoor adventure programs for young adults impacted by cancer.

During the First Descents experience, young adult survivors and fighters are empowered through conquering legitimate outdoor challenges to push their limits and face their fears, and by doing so, they are able to regain the confidence and self-efficacy lost to cancer. The experience is designed to allow healing to happen naturally and organically – no forced conversations and no structured group sessions or therapy.

Each program is limited to 15 participants, ensuring individualized care, medical attention and an intimate experience with fellow survivors. First Descents programs are available to young adults with cancer regardless of their financial means. All meals, accommodations and program activities are provided free of charge, including travel scholarships, when needed.

In 2016, every single TCS New York City marathoner, supporter and volunteer can unite to contribute towards the goal of raising funds for charities across the world.

Historically, the marathon has raised a massive amount of money for charity, and our goal is to bring the entire running community come together to get involved. When you run 26.2 miles for a charity, you are not only crossing the finish line for yourself, but for so many that will be impacted by your hard work and contribution!
