LIVESTRONG AT THE Y
LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA STRONG Foundation assists those who are living with, through, or beyond cancer to strengthen their spirit, mind and body.
The Y aims to improve the nation's health and well-being by providing programs and activities that promote wellness, reduce risk for disease and help others reclaim their health. These programs and everything else the Y does are in service of making us—our Ys and our communities—better. The result is a country that values health and communities that support healthy choices.
The statewide Healthy Living Committee meets quarterly to carry out the Alliance strategic plan in the areas of corporate membership, healthcare partnerships and health prevention.
