This free, 12-week small group program was developed and established in partnership with the LIVESTRONG® Foundation. The program assists those who are living with, through or beyond cancer to strengthen their spirit, mind and body. Our program is about saying goodbye to being a patient and saying hello to being a healthy, whole person again. The small group, physical activity program uses a private, non-intimidating circuit style that helps participants build strength, increase endurance, increase flexibility, reduce side effects of treatment, improve energy levels and self-esteem and improve overall quality of life.

Safety Around Water
71% of the world is water…children are 100% curious

Teaching children how to be safe around water is a necessity. Through our Safety Around Water program, we are help to ensure kids learn essential water safety skills, which allows them to safely satisfy their curiosity.

We partner with local school systems to provide this program, at no cost to the families, to second grade students. During the program, kids learn a sequenced set of skills to help reduce the risk of drowning and to give kids confidence in and around water.
