As part of its mission of inspiring outdoor adventure, Magma Products announced it will continue to support First Descents to positively impact the young adult oncology and multiple sclerosis (MS) communities as well as frontline healthcare workers.
The leading maker of outdoor and marine grills and accessories vowed to support and amplify its partnership with the Colorado-based nonprofit that provides life-changing outdoor adventures to young adults impacted by cancer and other serious health issues.
Chris DeRecat, CEO of Magma Products, said they are continuously impressed and appreciative of the work that First Descents does to help more people experience the healing power of the outdoors.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the organization again in 2023 to support the highly important and impactful programs that First Descents leads,” he said.
Magma will be providing a minimum donation of $25,000 to First Descents in 2023.
The organization has served more than 10,000 young adults with psychosocial supportive care since 2001.
With free, adaptive programs across the U.S., participants are empowered to go beyond their diagnosis with adventure-based activities including whitewater rafting, kayaking, surfing, and climbing.
Ray Shedd, Vice President of Advancement for First Descents, said Magma has been an amazing partner from the start, and they are thrilled to expand their partnership with them in 2023.
First Descents has 47 Week-Long Programs planned that will serve more than 575 young adults impacted by cancer and MS, healthcare workers, and caregivers for the year 2023.
