LIVESTRONG at the YMCA Kicks Off New Session in May

SOUTH AMBOY — Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous toll on a person, both physically and emotionally. The Y and LIVESTRONG have joined forces to create LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a research-based physical activity and well-being initiative designed to help adult cancer survivors achieve their holistic health goals.

The South Amboy Branch YMCA will be kicking off its next session with an orientation on May 1, 2013 at 6pm. The session will then run from May 7 to July 25. Throughout the free 12-week session, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve their goals. These include building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and self-esteem. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.

For more information about LIVESTRONG, please contact Debbie Martinez at 732-316-8223 or livestrong.-southamboy@ymcaofmewsa.org.
