At the Y, older adults are one of our greatest resources. We know that they are seeking a comfortable place to stay active, a sense of community and a desire to strengthen social ties. For good reason: socializing and volunteering have been shown to have positive effects on the health of older adults, and exercise has proven to promote mental agility, in addition to longevity and good health.

OFFERING THE GIFT OF HOPE
For People In Our Community Who Are Or Have Experienced Cancer
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a free, 12-week program designed to meet the needs of adults with cancer before, during, and after treatment. It is proven, evidence and research-based program that empowers cancer survivors to take an active role in their own health by engaging in a strength and conditioning program at their local Y. Focusing on health, rather than the disease, LIVESTRONG at the Y helps cancer survivors more beyond illness to reclaim wellness in spirit, mind, and body.
