“KIND is the type of company that operates with a steadfast commitment to their community that goes way beyond just product,” states First Descents Director of Marketing Sarah Hubbard. “Healthy eating is an essential part of the treatment process for many of our participants. KIND understands our need for nutritional resources and shares our mission of inspiring an active and supportive culture. They are an ideal partner on so many levels.”

“KIND is beyond excited to partner with First Descents as our mission of doing the kind thing for your body, your taste buds and your world closely aligns with FD’s mission of living life to the fullest through adventure and activity,” states KIND’s Regional Field Marketing Manager Alex Schirer. “The symmetry between our two organizations can be seen and felt in the mutual aspiration to lead a healthy life, no matter what obstacles may be standing in your way.”
