My Y Story: Mary
By participating in LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, Mary gained friendships with others experiencing the same health issues. Together, they shared their hopes and joys, and encouraged each other to focus on moving forward rather than looking back.
They created a bond of trust and support. Through the program, Mary gained strength and confidence, and learned
she could do things she never thought possible. Such as participate in a fun run.
“The Y has helped me gain a new understanding of what is best for me and has given me a better mind, body, and soul. I am glad that I participated in LIVESTRONG and encourage others to take advantage of this wonderful program.”
