Mini Rompers is a NEW family group beginning Fall 2, 2016, geared towards families with children 2 years and younger. This is a great opportunity to have your children enjoy the use of soft mats, preschool gym equipment and more while you can watch and connect with other families!

My Y Story...

Karen

My story begins with a routine mammogram, followed by a biopsy and then the diagnosis of breast cancer. I was extremely lucky. My cancer was caught very early, and the prognosis was good. I had surgery followed by seven weeks of radiation. By the time I was finished I was extremely worn out and exhausted. When I entered the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program I was very weak and had not been in any type of regular exercise program for some time. I started out slow and as time went on I continued to get stronger. Soon after, I got the wild idea to try running the Cellcom half-marathon with my son. Never did I ever imagine I would be able to do that. Along the way I have lost a few pounds, a few more inches, and feel GREAT! It wasn’t always easy but it certainly has been worth it! Thanks to the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program, staff and other participants for the support and encouragement. Karen
