BENEFITING: FIRST DESCENTS

ORGANIZER: Brent

EVENT DATE: Aug 14, 2010

Dirk Sorenson

THE STORY:

First Descents is a tremendous organization that helps young adults with Cancer in a truly special way. This organization is great because it leverages whitewater kayaking instruction in a camp setting that encourages bonding, risk taking, and adventure to empower and facilitate healing and growth for the participants.

Every year, this great camp has increased its ability to serve young adults who want to make their lives more about living than just "surviving."

On August 14, I will participate in the Leadville 100 mountain bike race as a member of Team First Descents to help raise funds to increase the levels of service that First Descents can provide. Much of the expansion of the camp has come through the funds raised through rider sponsorship.

The race itself draws 1400 competitors, including cyclists like Lance Armstrong, and covers 104 grueling miles of steep roads and trails. The entire race occurs at altitudes above 9000 feet. This elevation saps most competitors of around 15% of their normal cardiovascular ability making the race all that more difficult.

Please support the Team's effort with a donation and spread the word.

To encourage your already kind ways we have put together a number of donor incentives. You can check them out at the main team page by clicking on the Brent's name above. He is our team organizer and has done a great job putting together some incentives including team cycling gear and attendance at one of the First Descents camps where you will get tremendous insight into the cause as well as first rate whitewater kayaking instruction.

If you have any questions or personal challenges please reach out to me at by posting a comment here.
