A video from the 2011 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk event benefiting The American Cancer Society, featuring Triumph’s own Rachel Culver, a cancer survivor.
Each October is breast cancer awareness month, and October 2012 marks the second year in a row Triumph Bank is showing its support, starting with one of our own. Last year, Rachel Culver, Triumph Assistant Vice President (and a cancer survivor), led a team that raised over $3,200 in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. Dubbed “Rachel’s Rebels/Triumph Bank,” her team will repeat by participating in the October 13 Making Strides walk, with a goal of besting last year’s donations.

In an email to Triumph Bank employees asking for sponsorship, Rachel said, “As I went through chemo three years ago, I am so thankful for the availability of the drugs I received. The research that occurred probably 40 or more years ago developed the drugs that I received that saved my life. Understandably, raising money for research is very important to me.”
As we did last year, Triumph will be a proud Rachel’s Rebels sponsor, and support breast cancer awareness month in every branch office throughout October. Employees who join Rachel’s team, or donate $15.00, will receive a team T-shirt. “Pink Fridays,” will allow employees who donate $2.00 to wear jeans to work, with a pink shirt or team T-shirt. In addition, pink cards will be placed in each lobby for customers to donate $1.00 or more in honor of a friend or loved one. Pink ribbon lapel pins will also be available in lobbies for a minimum donation of $1.00.
Triumph President Will Chase said, “This is about supporting Rachel’s passion to fund what is near and dear to her heart as well as ours. We are extremely fortunate to be associated with her and involved in this cause.”
