Madison Area YMCA Celebrates LIVESTRONG® Graduation

MADISON — Madison Area YMCA’s 20th LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA class graduated on Thursday, July 1. The LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program supports cancer survivors and their families through a no-fee, 12-week, research-based program that engages them in physical and social activities to strengthen the whole person.

Bringing those affected by cancer a significant step forward toward sustained healthy living beyond cancer diagnosis and recovery, survivors are encouraged to come as they are, no matter what stage of wellness they are in. The 12-week program brings together cancer survivors and YMCA staff trained in cancer care to achieve goals such as building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; improving confidence and self-esteem; and ultimately practicing a healthy lifestyle, not only as a part of recovery but as a way of life.

In existence since 2013, the no-fee program which also offers complimentary Y services to survivors’ family members, receives support from our community through donations and sponsorships.

To learn more about LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, please contact Health & Wellness Director Christian Esola by email at CEsola@madisonymca.org or call the Madison Area YMCA at 973-822-YMCA (9622).

The Madison Area YMCA is a mission-driven charitable organization dedicated to strengthening the community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Generous donations make it possible for everyone in the community to be enriched by the Y, regardless of ability to pay, to develop a healthy spirit, mind, and body at any age.
