Your vote can help support families fighting cancer in the area.
The Missouri Valley Family YMCA has been selected to participate in the LIVESTRONG Foundation Community Impact Project. The Project is an online campaign to determine who receives additional funding to implement physical and social programs to improve lives of people affected by cancer.
"LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a research-based program. The setting is at a YMCA and not like a medical facility or a hospital, because we want to focus on health, not disease. So it's meant to guide them through that physical state, that emotional state, and condition them back to a new normal life," says Lindsey Peterson, YMCA Fitness Director. Nationally, there are 13 million cancer survivors.
If you'd like to see the LIVESTRONG cancer support project in place at the Missouri Valley Family YMCA, votes are being accepted through next Thursday, March 28th. Go to Vote.LIVESTRONG.org to cast your ballot.
