The YMCA of Central Kentucky has been selected to offer LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a physical activity and well-being initiative that helps people affected by cancer reach their holistic health goals.

LIVESTRONG is the brand of the Lance Armstrong Foundation, created in 1997 by the cancer survivor and champion cyclist to serve people living with cancer.

With LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, the Y engages cancer survivors through an approach that focuses on the whole person.

Participants work with trained Y staff to build muscle mass and strength, increase flexibility and endurance and improve functional ability. The program also focuses on the emotional well-being of survivors.
