The Lyon Cares Foundation announced today that Triumph Cancer Foundation is the recipient of a $5,000 grant. The mission of the Triumph Cancer Foundation is empowering cancer survivors to recapture their lives after treatment through exercise. Triumph Fitness, and other continuing programs, are offered to qualified adult cancer survivors at no cost.

Operated by Lyon Real Estate, the Lyon Cares Foundation offers time, talent, and treasure to local nonprofits that make their communities a better place. Funds are raised through escrow and payroll contributions by Lyon agents and staff in addition to Lyon’s annual Golf Tournament.

“This year we have seen a large increase in the number of survivors seeking our help, so this award couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Pam Whitehead, Executive Director of Triumph Cancer Foundation. “We will be using the money to help fund an additional class of Triumph Fitness in September.”         

“It gives us great pride to give this grant to Triumph Cancer Foundation,” said Lyon Real Estate president Pat Shea. “They are doing very important work.”

In 2018, each of Lyon’s 14 offices, in addition to their headquarters office will be giving two $5,000 grants to organizations of their choice, totaling $150,000.  Lyon’s Sierra Oaks office chose Triumph Cancer Foundation to be the recipient of their grant.
