RECLAIM YOUR ENERGY

RECLAIM YOUR POWER

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a small-group program developed and established in partnership with the LIVESTRONG Foundation, assists those living with, through, or beyond cancer to strengthen their mind, body, and spirit.  
 
Recent research from the Yale Cancer Center and Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute confirmed that LIVESTRONG at the YMCA participants experience improved fitness and quality of life as well as significant decreases in cancer-related fatigue.
 
The program has served more than 30,000 cancer survivors in more than 400 communities across the nation. It is open to adults 18 years or older.
