LIVESTRONG AT THE YMCA
Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. The Y and the LIVESTRONG Foundation have joined together to create LIVESTRONG
at the YMCA, a research-based physical activity and well-being program
designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health.
Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to
safely achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength;
increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and
self-esteem. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG
at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and
body. Daytime and evening classes are available. To learn more about
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, contact: Neta Taylor-Post at 401-427-1825.
