Moffitt and YMCA of the Suncoast team up to improve wellness for cancer survivors

Moffitt Cancer Center and the YMCA of the Suncoast are working together to improve health and wellness among cancer survivors and their families.

Moffitt is the new sponsor of YMCA of the Suncoast’s cancer survivorship program. Together, the two organizations will work to expand the 12-week wellness program to offer more benefits to its participants, according to a statement.

The YMCA Survivorship & Wellness Program Powered by Moffitt provides two sessions a week that are facilitated by YMCA-certified instructors who focus on improving cardiovascular conditioning, strength, balance and flexibility.

Survivors can enroll in the program at any of the seven YMCA of the Suncoast locations in Pasco, Pinellas, Hernando and Citrus counties. There is no cost to join the 12-week program which includes a three-month membership to the YMCA. The program’s first group will start in June.
