Increased Wellness Opportunities to Those Affected by Cancer through LIVESTRONG at the Bangor YMCA

About This Grant:

Caring Connections and the Bangor Region YMCA Health and Wellness Department will increase the capacity of its very successful LIVESTRONG program, offered to cancer patients and survivors. Funds from MCF will be used to provide specialized training to three additional YMCA fitness staff in order to offer more LIVESTRONG sessions and decrease the time in which cancer survivors are on a waiting list for the program. Additional funds will be used to support these trainers and provide scholarship funds to help LIVESTRONG graduates, dealing with the financial toxicity of cancer, to be able to become YMCA members, and continue exercising in the “STAY STRONG” program as well as taking advantage of other programs and classes at the YMCA.
