Team Survivor Perseverance - Juneau, Alaska™ is a non-profit corporation and member of the National Association of Team Survivor Groups.

WHO WE ARE NATIONALLY

The original Team Survivor™ program was founded in 1995 in conjunction with the Danskin™ Women's Triathlon Series. The individuals involved with the Danskin Team Survivor program in Seattle, Washington, believed that it was important to provide year-round support and fitness opportunities, and started an organization to provide weekly exercise programs and periodic fitness events for women affected by cancer. Since that time, Team Survivor™ programs have grown throughout the United States. Further information about Team Survivor™ can be found on the national website: www.teamsurvivor.org.

WHO WE ARE LOCALLY

While receiving cancer treatment in Seattle in 2000 Nicki Germain became aware of the Team Survivor programs. Having received tremendous support from family, friends, co-workers and even strangers during her treatment, Nicki was looking for a way to express her gratitude and give something back to the community. She saw Team Survivor as a way to do this.

Team Survivor Perseverance - Juneau, Alaska™ formed in January of 2002 with a weekly walking group. In September of that year, we sent our first running team to the Klondike Road Relay.

In line with our mission, we strive to keep women physically active year round. Since that first year, weekly programs have expanded and seasonal training programs have been added.

See our schedule for ongoing group activities and upcoming special events.
