promoting innovative cancer research
The Triumph Fund, LTD.
"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see."
We had an outstanding response to our Honoring The Lorax inaugural event in 2013 and all subsequent events. In addition to the large number of people that attended the dinners, many others made generous contributions. From these events we raised approximately $165,000 for the Clinical Trials Office (CTO) - and its Nicholas Family Foundation Translational Research Unit - at the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center.
Details on the CTO's use of the funds donated by The Triumph Fund and its donors is set forth in the Musings tab on our blog, Triumph Funding. Please see http://thetriumphfund.wordpress.com/2014/05/15/productive-and-efficient-the-ctos-use-of-the-triumph-funds-donations/
The Triumph Fund is proud that, among other uses of the funds, they have been used to convert a copy room in the Clinical Trials Office to an education center for meeting with outside Sponsors of planned and ongoing clinical trials and for training of CTO staff. Recognizing the role of The Triumph Fund, this education center is referred to as The Lorax Classroom and is decorated in a Lorax theme. http://www.mcw.edu/cancercenter/centernews/DirectorsUpdate/Directors-Update-February-2014/Triumph-Fund-Update-Lorax-Room-Feb.-2014.htm
A Recap of Past Events
This room is a testament to the desire of The Triumph Fund's community - it's donors and supporters - to help others and to play a meaningful role in the battle against cancer.
The funds raised from our second event helped make it possible for Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin to host the first ever Clinical Research Symposium on October 4, 2014. More than sixty clinical research professionals from all over Southeastern Wisconsin were on hand for this interactive event which supported the development and advancement of clinical research staff. This success led to a continuation of these programs on an annual basis.
In 2016 The Triumph Fund began support of a clinical trials seed grant project. Seed grants provide important initial funding for new research projects. This funding supports a cancer clinical research project that is both innovative and translational.
We thank you.
