New York, NY, September 3, 2020 — 57Hours is thrilled to announce a new partnership with First Descents to facilitate discounted access to guided adventures to all First Descents community members. 57Hours, the platform that connects individuals with certified guides for outdoor adventures, strives to provide a service that makes it easy for everyone to take advantage of the outdoors. Perica Levatić, co-founder of 57Hours, says, “We are excited to partner with First Descents, an incredible organization that provides life-changing outdoor adventures for young adults impacted by cancer and other serious health conditions.” 

First Descents has developed programs to empower these young adults through unforgettable outdoor adventures and peer-to-peer community building. As part of their Out Living It Project, First Descents alumni will have exclusive discounted access to peak adventure experiences through 57Hours. First Descents’ Director of Programs, Mackenzie McGrath, says “Partnering with 57Hours makes it easier than ever to help our community continue Out Living It. Together, we are connecting the FD family with vetted outfitters and enabling them to take their adventure lifestyle to the next level.”

This partnership stems from the mission of both companies to make outdoor recreation accessible to all, and the belief that adventuring in nature helps people become stronger, healthier and happier. “We strongly believe in the mission of First Descents and are proud to be a part of facilitating adventure-based healing for people who have already overcome so much,” says Levatić. “This is just the beginning of our commitment to this organization and we look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together.”
