LIVESTRONG at the YMCA

 

The Y and the LIVESTRONG® Foundation joined together to create LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors achieve their holistic health goals. The research-based program offers people affected by cancer a safe, supportive environment to participate in physical and social activities focused on strengthening the whole person. Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and self-esteem. In addition to physical benefits, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA focuses on the emotional well-being of survivors and their families by providing a supportive community where people impacted by cancer can connect during treatment and beyond. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA helps people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.

 

Healthy living is a priority of the YMCA of High Point.  LIVESTRONG at the YMCA helps cancer survivors in our community heal and reclaim their physical, emotional, & spiritual strength.  We are doing this through partnering with other health organizations within the community to create a safe and supportive environment in which survivors can build a support network while participating in physical activities tailored to their individual goals and needs.  This is accomplished through specialized group exercise classes and training programs created in cooperation with the individual’s physician. LIVESTRONG is important to us because we are committed to making High Point Strong by providing opportunities for everyone in our community to reach their full potential. Our goal is to provide a welcoming & supportive environment where cancer survivors and their families feel safe to heal together while reclaiming their life.
