Hi Friends and Family,
Triumph to the Summit 2020 has begun! Each week for the next 9-weeks we encounter and conquer new summits consisting of longer and higher treks with beautiful views that condition us for the final summit of Mt. Tallac.
I embark on this second year of training dreading the difficulty each hike brings but driven by excitement and the knowledge from experience that I can do it! I look forward to once again gathering with my fellow Triumph survivors (appropriately distanced) and accompanied by my husband and, this year, my daughter.
It is incredible to participate in an activity with Stephanie, like hiking, that we rarely did before her cancer diagnosis. We are more active than ever, thanks to support and programs offered through Triumph Cancer Foundation. It is both humbling and fun to participate with Stephanie and other cancer survivors as they achieve weekly hikes towards their goal. (Michael)
Whenever people ask me how my mom is doing post-cancer, I tell them she hiked a mountain. My mom is an incredibly strong woman. She may struggle, but she fights and she doesn’t let anything, even her body, dictate what she can do. I’m looking forward to whipping myself into shape so I can share in this leg of my mom’s cancer story. (Hayley)
One of my favorite aspects of our hikes is the line of blue Triumph shirts positioned up and down the path and the opportunity to tell those who inquire about the Triumph Cancer Foundation. Through this organization, I have an incredible community that has equipped, encouraged, and enabled me as I strive to move forward, albeit slowly.
Your donation will help fund a cancer survivor’s participation in a 12-week program specifically designed to assist survivors who have recently completed treatment by regaining strength, stamina, and confidence lost during their battle with cancer.
Despite the pandemic, the Foundation continues to provide Triumph Fitness to cancer survivors in a modified format that keeps participants safe. The team of certified Instructors has developed a virtual format that offers the same guidance and cares the regular format offered including the opportunity to work out with fellow cancer survivors.
All dollars raised through this endeavor will fund Triumph Fitness!
