Fighting Cancer with SUP

First Descents offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors an outdoor experience designed to empower them beyond their diagnosis, defy cancer, reclaim their lives, and connect with others. Oregon Active helped in doing so by taking a group out to beautiful Hood River for Stand-Up Paddle Boarding. Similar to a surfboard, the paddler stands on top of a paddle board and propels themselves across the beautiful Columbia River using a long single-bladed paddle.
