Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. The Y and LIVESTRONG® have joined together to create LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, a research-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help cancer survivors achieve their holistic health goals. This program is free to cancer survivors. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA helps people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind, and body.

Please note that online registration is not available for the LIVESTRONG® program. Please see the branch contacts below for more information and to register.
