BENEFITING: FIRST DESCENTS

EVENT: 2010 ING New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010

THE STORY:

So we have this 10.10.10 project with Ryan Sutter (of "The Bachelorette" Trista & Ryan fame). Ryan's goal is to compete in 10 ridiculous endurance events like Lake Placid Ironman, Leadville 100, Firecracker 50, etc. and he is trying to get 10,000 people to donate $10 to First Descents in celebration of First Descents' 10th anniversary. Anyway, the last event on Ryan's schedule is the ING NYC Marathon on November 7th and we are pulling out all the stops. Team First Descents has secured 5 spots in the Marathon and will be leading a group effort to raise awareness and funds for First Descents. Joining Ryan on the streets of New York will be Brad Ludden, founder of First Descents. While Brad is an accomplished world-renowned kayaker, he is no runner and is only doing this because Sutter will kill him if he doesn't do it. The remaining three spots will be used by three amazing young adult cancer survivors who have benefitted from the incredible programs that First Descents offers in the young adult cancer world.

Click on the Orange "FIRST DESCENTS" above to learn more about the foundation. Then come back and click on "DONATE NOW" and give until it hurts! First Descents has grown from 5 camps in 2008 to 9 camps in 2009 to 15 camps in 2010 and now we're looking to expand to 25 camps in 2011. To do that and to continue to ably serve a wildly underserved young adult cancer population, we need your support. Please help us.
