Trium is Proud to Announce Its Involvement with the Send It Foundation

Originally conceived by cancer fighter and extreme sports enthusiast, Jamie Schou, the Send It Foundation’s mission is to inspire positivity, courage and gratitude in young adult cancer fighters through the gift of outdoor adventure and community. In the wake of Jamie’s passing this summer, Send It’s determination to help those still battling their disease is stronger than ever.

Trium is thrilled to lend its support to the Foundation, both because we believe so strongly in its mission, and because one of our own, Katie Schou, is the acting Executive Director. The skills she developed while managing client projects at Trium have served her well as she transitions into her leadership position at Send It.

Katie’s former colleagues have also served her well, working with Katie to lay the foundation for the Foundation. Recently, Trium’s Catherine Gray and Jill Baker hosted a pro bono Visioning/Roadmapping session to help the group define its 5-year vision, align on their mission statement and core values, and do some detailed planning around what initial steps need to be taken during the first year of operation. Moving forward, we’ll be working with the board members – currently all close friends and family members of Jamie’s – to guide them in their efforts to collaboratively lead the organization and fulfill Jamie’s vision. We’ll also be supporting them as they refine their pitch and make plans for their first major fundraising event.

Perhaps the most important result of Send It’s Visioning session in late October were the five defining values that emerged by the end of the day. Appropriately, each of these values corresponds with mantras that Jamie used to hold near and dear – both in his extreme sports pursuits and in his valiant fight with his disease.

  1. Movement: “Movement is life.”
  2. Positivity: “Leave a trail of smiles wherever you go.”
  3. Community: “Support and inspire each other every step of the way.”
  4. Presence: “We all have one thing in common: this moment.”
  5. Courage: “Don’t ever give up – there is always another way!”

 

With Katie at the helm, core values firmly in place, and the invaluable support of the Trium team, the Send It Foundation is poised to help countless numbers of young adult cancer warriors confront the many challenges – and opportunities – in front of them. In doing so, Send It’s very existence offers proof that while Jamie’s own battle may be over, his fight will live on forever.

 “Cancer can take my hair, take parts of my body, take my time… but it will never take my smile!!

Jamie Schou
