LIVESTRONG at the YMCA

The YMCA and LIVESTRONG joined together to create LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors achieve their health goals. We are committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for specialized exercise, programming and community building. We focus on the whole person, not just the disease. Through LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, we strive to help survivors move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.

WHO?
The program is available to adult cancer survivors (18 years +) in the Saratoga Regional YMCA community.

WHAT?
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a 12-week small group exercise program for adults affected by cancer, under the guidance of specially trained health and wellness staff, and offered at no cost.

WHEN?
Each session consists of classes (meeting twice weekly) designed for survivors, in addition to individualized activities throughout the week that can incorporate family and/or support persons.

WHERE?
The program takes place at the SRYMCA’s Saratoga Springs, Wilton, Malta and Battenkill Branches.

WHY?
The Saratoga Regional YMCA is honored to have been chosen as a host site of the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program. Survivors are provided with a place to rebuild strength and stamina lost during treatment and encouraged to build relationships, both with each other and the already present community of YMCA members and staff.

HOW?
Contact any member of our LIVESTRONG team to inquire about joining or supporting the program. If you would like to make a donation to this or other Saratoga Regional YMCA programs, contributions can be made by visiting www.srymca.org/donate.
