LIVESTRONG AT THE YMCA

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is a free program tailored to meet the specific needs of adult cancer survivors who would like to improve or reclaim their health and well-being before, during and after treatment. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA helps participants move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.

The 12-week small group exercise and support program meets twice per week with certified instructors who have completed specialized YMCA of the USA training in the elements of cancer, rehabilitative exercise and supportive cancer care.

Participants in the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program receive a complimentary 3-month Y membership for themselves and their family or a caregiver.
