YMCA’s PROVIDE FREE CANCER SURVIVOR SUPPORT PROGRAM LIVESTRONG®

Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. Last fall, both the Chambersburg YMCA and Waynesboro YMCA piloted LIVESTRONG®, a research -based physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health. Both programs are being funded by Summit Endowment.

Healthy Community Design: Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice

Your zip code can impact your life expectancy and how healthy you are more than your genetic code. The physical design of a community can affect your physical and mental health. It’s not always easy to get exercise if you don’t have sidewalks in your neighborhood or live close to a park or trail. It’s not always easy to eat right if you don’t live close to a grocery store or can’t afford to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at the farmers market.
