Keep Moving Forward Grant Recipient

Triumph’s Keep Moving Forward (KMF) Grant is for people with spinal cord injury that have limited financial capability to help them triumph over obstacles they face and enhance their quality of life.

Triumph’s KMF Grants help individuals get necessary Adaptive Equipment for activities of daily living, make Home Modifications for wheelchair accessibility, enable the Return to Work reintegrating back into the community, and engage in Therapeutic Activities for health and wellness.

Meet Taylor, a remarkable individual whose life took an unexpected turn due to a spinal cord injury. Despite facing immense challenges, Taylor's spirit remains unbroken, fueled by the unwavering support of her community, friends, and partner.

Now, Taylor is on a quest for complete independence. She dreams of exploring the breathtaking landscapes of East Tennessee, engaging in activities like hiking and kayaking once again. With the help of adaptive sports equipment provided by local organizations like Catalyst, she's making strides toward her goals.

But there was one crucial missing piece: hand controls for her vehicle. With this final step, Triumph Foundation was able to help Taylor regain the freedom to drive and ultimately return to work, reclaiming her independence.

Taylor's journey is not just about overcoming adversity; it's about resilience, determination, and the power of community. Join us in supporting Taylor as she continues to inspire others with her courage and tenacity. Together, we can make a difference in her life and empower her to thrive once more.
