Kicks It was a chilly and windy Fall day, but that didn't stop a great group of individuals from coming out to represent the Michiana Family YMCA at the Making Strides Walk this past Saturday. 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.


The Y is committed to providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to inability to pay.
