Sand Canyon Country Club has donated $25,000 to Triumph Foundation to support outreach that provides people who suffer paralyzing injuries with resources, grants, and recreation activities.
The contribution from Sand Canyon Country Club’s CEO Steve Kim will help support Triumph Foundation’s Newly Injured Support program and its upcoming Wheelchair Sports Festival at the Santa Clarita Sports Complex on April 28 & 29, 2018.
“We are very grateful for Sand Canyon Country Club’s donation to Triumph Foundation,” said Andrew Skinner, Executive Director of Triumph Foundation. “This sizable gift will help make the dreams and goals newly paralyzed people a reality.”
Raising capital has always been one of Skinner’s biggest obstacles. “We are a small charity, with big hearts but not the pocketbook to match,” he says. “This generous donation from Sand Canyon Country Club will allow us to help so many people.”
This is the second major donation to Triumph Foundation from Sand Canyon Country Club to support Triumph’s programs.

Skinner suffered a spinal cord injury in November 2004 in a snowboarding accident. Skinner has made a remarkable recovery and wants others with similar injuries to triumph like him. “I have come so far from where I was initially. Now, I am living the American dream, despite my physical impairment. I want to help others do the same.”
