Triumph Foundation’s Adaptive Recreation program gives people with disabilities an opportunity to push the limits of their ability and enhance their quality of life. Our mission is to provide adaptive sports, fitness, recreation, and outdoor adventure events to people living in the Southern California community.

As a recognized Paralympic Sport Club with the United States Olympic Committee, Triumph Foundation makes activities like riding bikes, target shooting, and playing sports achievable for people with mobility impairments. Our program includes competitive sports, organized events, health and wellness activities, sport instruction, and FUN!

Triumph Foundation believes exercise is medicine; that living a healthy lifestyle is an important part of every individual’s life, but particularly in the life of a disabled individual; and that staying fit is essential to recovery and to avoiding secondary complications. Sports and athletics are a great way to stay healthy.

The benefits of Adaptive Recreation go beyond the physical, they transcend and contribute to the mental wellness and self-esteem for injured individuals. Among the ongoing challenges of spinal cord injury is a sense of being fragile and overprotected; sports allow a person to release pent up emotions, feel a sense of camaraderie and fellowship among teammates, and find a sense of purpose.

Triumph Foundation works to expand the number of para-athletes, increase community involvement in wheelchair sports, and we partner with community based programs to enhance their capability. Make a Gift
