At Triumph Cancer Foundation we believe in “being the change we want to see”. Because of Triumph Fitness, Survivors can now do more than just “survive”; they can take their lives back from cancer!
Cancer survival rates continue to rise, outpacing the region’s ability to deliver programs like Triumph Fitness, in fact we are the only organization in the region specializing in Exercise-focused Cancer Recovery. The more help we get, the more we can expand our programs to the Sacramento community.
At Triumph, volunteers help make decisions by serving on committees, use their circle of influence to spread the word about our programs, and gain access “back stage” at our events. Our volunteers bring valuable skills to the table and leverage their networks so that survivors can triumph over cancer.
Triumph volunteers are outgoing, friendly, and articulate about our programs. Volunteers serve on our outreach team, (disseminating information about how to support and participate in our programs); staff our community event booths and help out online throughout the year.
Stop wishing. Start doing! When you volunteer, all of Sacramento benefits. Shamrock’n Half Marathon Weekend and Triumph Uncorked raise most of our annual budget. These events are fueled by volunteerism.
We accept inquiries from families, friends, Cancer Navigators, Physicians & Nurses, caregivers, and any Cancer Treatment Center. If you know someone in treatment now (or a survivor who has recently completed their treatment), let them know about us!
We are willing and able to make it happen if we can find the partners to help us do it.”
– Pam Whitehead, Founder & Executive Director
The official race for cancer survivors.
Fleet Feet has made Triumph Cancer Foundation the sole beneficiary Shamrock’n Half Marathon Weekend since 2017. What began as a Half Marathon has grown into a fun weekend of events including a 5k, 10k, and Leprechaun Dash for the kids. A portion of every registration and 100% of the donations made go straight to Triumph’s programs.
Participation in the race is open to anyone and cancer survivors are celebrated at the finish line with a yellow rose.
Triumph Fitness Graduate, Crystal Rowland, was looking for a way to “Pay it Forward” in 2015. After training all Summer, a group of 10 Team Triumph members successfully climbed Mt. St. Helens in Washington on September 11. At the summit, the group held a special ceremony to honor those who had been lost to cancer or were still fighting. In this process, they raised $6,000 for our Foundation!
Since then, Team Triumph has kept the adventure alive by training over the Summer and summiting a peak in the Sierra Mountains annually.
We support Survivors whether they have participated in our programs, are still waiting to get in, or have never heard of us before today!
