Magma and First Descents share a passion for outdoor experiences that create impact and are committed to helping more people experience the healing powers of adventure. So, beginning in 2022, we are excited to announce that 2% of all online sales from magmaproducts.com will go to support First Descents’ life-changing outdoor adventure programs for young adults living with cancer and MS, as well as the frontline healthcare workers. Together, Magma and First Descents will expand the healing power of outdoor adventure to local communities nationwide.

Through the Rapids: An Alumni Story
In 2018, Elyse "Birdy" Palmer joined us on our first pilot program for young adults living with multiple sclerosis (MS) in Tarkio, Montana. In this film, Birdy shares her diagnosis journey, how MS impacted her emotionally and physically, and how finding First Descents led her to embrace a bold life of adventure.
