LIVESTRONG AT THE YMCA

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is a 12-week evidence-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their health and well-being before, during and after treatment. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA helps participants move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.
