The YMCA of Central Texas strives to offer free programming to cancer survivors with the purpose of restoring healthy mind, body and spirit. The LIVESTRONG AT THE YMCA race includes a 1K fun run and 5K/10K race in beautiful Woodway Park in Woodway,Texas.
Cancer touches nearly every life—either directly or through a relative or friend. Although the diagnosis may be scary, advances in treatment allow us to celebrate that more survivors are winning this battle. Many survivors struggle to return to a normal life or define their “new normal.” To help them, the YMCA of Central Texas offers LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, a program designed to help cancer survivors regain strength, balance and stamina. At the Y, we believe cost should not be a barrier to survivors reclaiming their fitness levels and receiving needed support. Therefore, every survivor participates free of charge. In addition, their family members receive a free three-month membership to the Y while their loved ones are enrolled in LIVESTRONG at the YMCA. Proceeds from this event will help support the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program.
All proceeds fund LIVESTRONG at the YMCA so that we can continue serving cancer survivors in our community. We might be serving one of your patients, friends, family members or coworkers — maybe even you.
2017 race registration is open.
