CHAD BOWMAN'S STORY
After being diagnosed with Testicular Cancer in 2017, I went through tremendous amounts of treatments that overall affected my body and health, causing me to lose half of my body weight, and nearly all muscle mass.
Upon remission, and working toward recovery, had the fortunate opportunity to join the Triumph Cancer Foundation and have them help give me MY LIFE back again. Prior to being an active participant in Triumph, I was barely able to walk, unable to jump, run, or even do a pushup.
Today, I am the most fit and healthy I have been in years. I have regained my strength, balance and stamina thanks to Triumph.
But, I am not done yet. I have joined Triumphs, TRIUMPH TO THE SUMMIT program in an effort to show myslef and others that you can do whatever you put your mind to. This opportunity is allowing me to go on weekly hikes that I would never do otherwise. It is allowing me to push my self and my limits to go further.
I have only had this opporunity because others before me have raised the funds to put me through this amazing program. NOW, it is my turn to giveback. It is my turn to PAY IT FORWARD.
My mission and goal is to raise $1,000 by September 1st, in an effort to raise enough money to put one participant through the program so that they can reclaim their life just like I have.
WHAT YOUR DONATION MEANS
I promise to wear a ribbon on my pack during EVERY HIKE in their honor.
I will ask you to provide me with the name of a loved one, friend, family member, or simply someone you know who has been affected or lost due to cancer.
For those who have survived (Triumphed) over cancer, I will place a YELLOW ribbon with their name on it as a symbol or hope.
For those who we have lost due to cancer, I will place a WHITE ribbon with their name on it as a symbol of remembrance to help ensure they are never forgotten.
In addition to the above I will personally recoginize you and your honoree via social media as a thank you for contributing to such a great cause, and to help ensure they are never forgotten.
Lastly, I will personally recognize you and your honoree in my video-diary that I make while on my Triumph to the Summit, and I will share that video-diary on social media.
YOUR DONATION MATTERS
It is important to note and remember that your donation WILL go to the Triumph Cancer Foundation and help put another participant through this amazing program!
MORE ABOUT TRIUMPH TO THE SUMMIT
On September 7th, our 2019 team will tackle Mt. Tallac, one of the highest peaks in the Tahoe Basin, topping out at 9,735'! Through the weeks leading up to this epic hike, our team forms bonds and grows strong together. We share information about Triumph Fitness with hikers we meet along the trail to raise awareness about this vital program available to adult cancer survivors in the Sacramento Metro region.
As a team, we raise money to give other cancer survivors the opportunity to participate in Triumph Fitness to help them with their recovery process.
Our message to others is always that surviving cancer is a triumph that should be celebrated and that you can go onto to accomplish amazing goals in your life after cancer treatment! #TogetherWeTriumph #TriumphtotheSummit
