Welcome to my First Descents Climbathon fundraising page! On April 2nd, I am climbing with two of my kids to raise money for the amazing organization that sent me kayaking last summer. It was truly a life changing experience. My FD tribe gave me the courage to do things I never would have dreamed were possible. Please help me support First Descents and its mission to provide life-changing outdoor adventure programs for young adults impacted by cancer. Please consider making a donation or joining my team! The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide. It will benefit a great cause!

I have been so inspired since my trip that I have started painting again. As an incentive for you to donate, I will paint a custom 8x10 watercolor for my highest donor and a 5x7 for my second highest donor. I will choose one other donor at random for a custom piece. You can choose a photo or combination of photos for my inspiration. So far I have done pet portraits, action shots from kayaking, flowers, landscapes and even made an attempt at a closeup portrait. You choose the subject and supply the photo(s) and I'll create something just for you. I will also be sending either a custom watercolor card to every donor or a print created for this event if I get more than 15 donors.  I am not a professional painter, but I have really been having fun creating with watercolor and would love to share some of my work with you. Here are a few examples of my recent paintings:

If you can't make a donation, please help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page!

Thanks so much for your generosity!
