One of the best ways to measure the effectiveness of our work is to see people empowered, not just to help themselves, but to offer service and hope to others. We see this self-sacrificing passion in our Ambassadors, support group leaders and volunteers. And it's what makes the Triumph Family so special.

This year we awarded children's author and advocate Margarita Elizondo with Triumph's Employment Achievement Award to support her as she develops an awareness program for schools that helps educate young people on disability issues and promotes the importance of diversity and inclusion in schools and organizations.

The training program entitled “I Am All In - Dance & Play” is a fun package of curriculum and training that teachers and students love. The award will enable Margarita to publish five new children's books to add to her “Rolling With Me & Friends” series bringing the total to ten different books!

Margarita's efforts directly support Triumph's vision to build an Inclusive Community, the 5th segment in our Circle of Care program cycle. Her work will increase awareness and provide opportunities for interaction and deeper understanding of the disabled population. We are proud to help Margarita keep moving forward with her work.
