The walk took place at Howard Park and benefited Breast Cancer Research through the American Cancer Society. Our team of 24, from the Michiana Family YMCA, was made up of staff, participants from our LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program, family members, and friends.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  Last week, 53 individuals from our community participated in a Cancer Prevention Study, hosted by the Michiana Family YMCA, to help the American Cancer Society continue their research and find a cure for this disease.  We are proud of each and every one of you for volunteering your time and giving your commitment to the American Cancer Society to continue this study for the next 20-30 years.

Kicks You swim for health, fitness and recreation. Did you know that the laps you are able to swim in just 15 minutes can go great lengths toward kids who don’t know how to swim yet? Share the gift of swimming with our youth!

Join us on for SWIM-A-PALOOZA! Tuesday, September 24, 2013 to swim 25 yards or more in 15 minutes and give a child a lifetime of laps. That’s just one length in a standard YMCA pool! Participants of all ages are welcome. Adults may swim their laps throughout the day to reach their 15 minutes or come during 6:00–8:00 pm and join the Stingrays Swim Team.
