Small victories, Big impact

100s of Hours of Instruction Each Year

Survivors get specialized attention, achieving individual goals, with a small group of peers. Our Programs are so effective, we receive referrals from every cancer center in the region.

18 Years of Triumph Fitness

Our programs have grown from one installation for Triumph Fitness, to multiple classes offered in a both in-person and virtual formats. We’ve also created new advanced programs for our graduates to keep them on their fitness journeys.  

Over 1500 Survivors Stronger!

We don’t just fill class slots with survivors. We curate people into a small community. Our participants are positioned for ongoing success as they progress through our programs.

Triumph Cancer Foundation serves the Sacramento Metro Area by (1) providing exercise-focused programs that empower adult cancer survivors to recapture their lives after cancer treatment at no cost to the participant; and (2) advocating for cancer survivors through participation in community activities and events we organize.
