We Grow Stronger By Lifting Each Other Up and Helping More People In Our Community Together!

David Caldarella
Co-Founder - David's Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation

No one can anticipate what they will need or how they will feel when they have been diagnosed with cancer. DD&BCF has created a wealth of opportunity for anyone who needs additional help during this time. Being part of the service arm allows us to provide an outlet for exercise and light training or to get strong after treatment.

“If we could turn the benefits of exercise into a pill it would be demanded by patients, prescribed by every cancer specialist and subsidized by government. It would be seen as a major breakthrough in cancer treatment.” - Harvard Health Publishing

When I learned about David’s Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation, I knew immediately that I wanted to be a part of it in some way. I was blown away by the work that they do and by the generosity of it’s supporters. Together, I know that Trident and DDBCF will do wonderful things for families in need. I am proud to be involved in such a great cause.

I became a trainer almost twenty-five years ago because I wanted to help people reach their fitness goals, what I discovered is that as trainers we can affect much more than fitness goals. I am thankful for the opportunity to partner up with David’s Dream and to help those affected by cancer during treatment and in recovery. We know that physical exercise is one of the keys to living a healthy lifestyle and that does not change, even during treatment. At Trident we offer a positive, supportive atmosphere to coach people during their cancer treatment, recovery and going forward. The benefits of physical exercise during treatment are well documented, ranging from increasing blood flow and improving balance to reducing the symptoms of fatigue and improving self-esteem. I have always believed that the stronger you are, mentally and physically, the more prepared you are for battle. - Paul Hafner, Head Coach, Owner/Partner Trident Fitness & Performance

I always knew that Trident was going to be more than just a gym. The ultimate goal has always been to make a difference in people's lives. When I heard about David Caldarella and read his story, I felt compelled to reach out and ask for this partnership. The moment David and I met, it was evident we were going to do great things together with our business and his organization. What I have already experienced in a short period of time has proven to be life changing and I can now see the bigger vision of what we are on a mission to achieve. David and his organization touch people's lives in a way that cannot be described. What we do here at Trident is to make exercising fun and enjoyable so every person that walks through our door becomes a better version of themselves. Being healthy, strong, confident and able to help support the people around you is one of the most rewarding feelings you can have. I cannot wait to see what we will accomplish together. Thank you David for your support and partnership. - Carolyn Card, Owner/Partner Trident Fitness & Performance

I absolutely love that we’ve teamed up with them. Being partnered with DD&BCF is in a word, inspirational. I’m inspired by their mission and love giving back to those in need in our community any way I can. Being a service arm for DD&BCF to me means being able to help people at a time in their lives when they may feel hopeless. Being a part of Trident and DD&BCF means we have the unique opportunity to be able to help these members of our community both physically become stronger so that they can battle illness, but we’re in a position to emotionally support them as well. The work David’s is doing is inspirational and I’m just so happy that we get to be a part of that. - Kate Donahue, Trident Fitness & Performance Coach and long standing member
