LIVESTRONG AT THE YMCA

 
Taking Action, Changing Lives

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is an evidence-based program that helps adult cancer survivors reclaim their health and well-being following a cancer diagnosis. The YMCA of Coastal Carolina creates a welcoming community in which survivors can improve their strength and physical fitness, diminish the severity of therapy side effects, develop supportive relationships, and improve their quality of life.

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. LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, was developed and established in partnership with the LIVESTRONG® Foundation, assists those who are living with, though, or beyond cancer to strengthen their spirit, mind and body.

This 12-week program meets twice a week, with each class lasting around 90 minutes. Each meeting includes a variety of activities, including workouts, nutrition coaching, community-building with other cancer survivors, health lectures, and more. 

Participants also receive a free YMCA membership for the duration of the program, to continue their wellness journey outside of formal class times.
