Learn about LIVESTRONG at the YMCA-
As you know cancer takes a tremendous toll on the spirit, mind and body. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA helps survivors begin to heal and reclaim their health in a safe, supportive environment. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA focuses on the whole person, not the disease. The FREE 12-week Program uses traditional exercise methods to ease survivors back into fitness.
Medical studies have shown that moderate levels of appropriate physical activity can reduce fatigue, boost self-esteem, and improve muscle strength and phycial endurance in individuals following cancer treatment. Cancer survivors themselves are increasingly aware of the positive impact that moderate physical activity, supportive relationships and stress reduction techniques can have on their quality of life. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA has helped thousands of cancer survivors move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.
Why We Fundraise -
The funds raised from our 5K will go towards providing LIVESTRONG at the YMCA Classes.
Every year our YMCA provides at least 5 12-week long sessions of LIVESTRONG at the YMCA to local cancer survivors for no cost. We know that a cancer diagnosis is devestating to a persons health but it can also be a huge financial burden.
Help us give local cancer survivors a chance to reclaim their health and well-being! __________________________________________________________________________
