Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous toll on a person, both physically and emotionally. The Y and LIVESTRONG have joined forces to create LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a research-based physical activity and well-being initiative designed to help adult cancer survivors achieve their holistic health goals.
In our role as a YMCA conference center, YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly creates weekend retreat experiences for cancer survivors who have completed the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA twelve-week program in their home communities.
We host one retreat each year in the spring. Our goal is to encourage the hearts and restore the souls of these special guests. It is a sweet time of fellowship, reflection, learning and renewal.
