FOR HEALTHY LIVING Joanne

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 Y.™ For a better us.™


At the Y, a supportive community is a big part of wellness. At every age and every level of activity, you’ll find people just like you looking to live a little bit healthier. Members and program participants often cite the support and enthusiasm of fellow participants and staff as some of the key factors in their achievement of greater well-being. One member of our LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program sums up her favorite class this way: “This is a great program, I’ve learned so much about what it means to be a cancer survivor after diagnosis how to make myself stronger spiritually, mentally, and physically.  I love that the Y makes it a personal journey for me as well as providing me with a group of other survivors who can relate to what I have experienced. I’m here 2-3 times a week now and I love the new me!”

LIVESTRONG® AT THE YMCA

Taking Action, Changing Odds

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a small-group program developed and established in partnership with the LIVESTRONG Foundation, assists those who are living with, through, or beyond cancer to strengthen their spirit, mind and body.  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.

The Stanly County Family YMCA offers LIVESTRONG at the YMCA sessions three times a year. Participants must be referred to the program by their physicians. Talk to your physican for a referral into our next session.

The Y is committed to providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to inability to pay. Click to read more about our Open Door Scholarship Program for financial assistance.
