So I'm trying to figure this out but I'm not finding much online. So, I want to thank the people who was involved into me being able to achieve something. I know the ~てくれて/いただいてありがとう... form, but what should I put before that. the "made it possible" part.

Another possibility could be "Thanks to everyone who helped/accompanied me on this journey", that's the idea at least.

It occured to me something like 「このたびにてつだっていただいたのみなさん、ありがとうございました」is that ok?

(今回)助けてくださったみなさん、ありがとうございました (based on your phrasing)

The last option contains big words but semantically fairly close to "Thanks to everyone who made it possible" already, where I think more literally would be:
