After receiving the diagnosis of Breast Cancer and undergoing a year of treatment from 2017-2018, I was presented with the opportunity to participate in the Triumph Fitness program. Through this program not only did I begin the process of rebuilding my strength and confidence in my physical abilities, I also learned I am a “survivor” and I am not alone.
Triumph to the Summit is a means of building on this foundation by pushing my body to new heights (get it 😊) and creating new relationships, all while raising funds for others to participate, free of charge, in what has been a life changing experience.
And... I am fortunate to have Michael along for the ride!
Each summer, Triumph Cancer Foundation assembles a team of Triumph graduates, cancer survivors and supporters to participate in "Triumph to the Summit". Throughout the summer, our team trains each weekend, with the ultimate goal being to climb to the summit of Mt. Tallac in September.
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
