First Descents provides life-changing outdoor adventures for young adults (ages 18-39) impacted by cancer. This year will be FD's 13th year with a Leadville Trail 100 MTB team! As far as fundraising goes, First Descents requires a minimum fundraising commitment of $3500. This is because we are confident that with our dedicated fundraising support our athletes will be able to not only make but exceed their fundraising goals. Also, charity entries are a pricey $1350 since Leadville is such a sought after race. In return for your hard work fundraising you'll receive a charity entry, FD kit and access to our team trainer, professional triathlete, Nicole Valentine. Nicole is racing this year as well so she will be leading training rides & course preview rides over the summer leading up to race-day! HERE is a video that gives a little history of FD's involvement at Leadville and HERE is our team fundraising page. To learn more or join Team FD email Andrew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
