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.


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.
