Livestrong registrations accepted

The Warren YMCA is in its first official session of Livestrong at the Y. In 2013 the Y engaged in a pilot program through a grant that helped train staff to be able to assist cancer survivors. This program is a free 12-week cancer survivor program. The program offers each individual the opportunity to find a new pathway to healthy living through nutrition talks, personal fitness routine and a community of cancer survivors to share their journey. Pictured in the pre-core room is Livestrong at the Y participant Shirley Pearson and her support friend Blanch Swaney. Cancer survivors are encouraged to bring their support system with them to work out along side them during the program. The Y is accepting applications for the next free session of Livestrong at the Y which begins in April. Contact the Y at 726-0110 or email
