BENEFITING: Young Mens Christian Association Naugatuck
The Naugatuck Y's Spin Strong for Livestrong will help raise funds needed to bring Livestrong at the YMCA to our community. Every year more and more employees, friends and family members are diagnosed with cancer. The YMCA is hoping to help the increasing number of cancer survivors who find themselves in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and the shift to feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life or their "new normal" by bringing the Livestrong program to the Naugatuck YMCA.
Livestrong at the YMCA's goal is to help meet the physical needs of cancer survivors through free conditioning and strength training. Participants are given access to certified trainers for a 12-week small group program free of charge. Specially trained wellness coaches will work with each participant to fit the program to his or her individual needs. The instructors are trained in the elements of cancer, post rehab exercise and supportive cancer care.
You can donate a little or a lot! No matter the amount the Ion Bank Foundation will match all donations. When you donate you can make a general donation, donate “in honor of” a cancer survivor or “in memory of” someone who has lost their battle with cancer.
