  • I have seen participants evolve both physically and emotionally, and felt honored to not only witness, but be part of those transformations, because much to my surprise, I changed, too. Kristin Leung, Wellness Director, Princeton Family YMCA

  • Exercise is important in that it creates a healthy lifestyle change that can help reduce chances of other diseases. Mary Biddle-Newberry, Health and Fitness Director, Downtown Boise YMCA

  • To have this opportunity to rebuild my strength, endurance, and stamina through this program was exciting. It gave me back my life to interact with my wife and my son the way I wanted to. Daniel Parker, Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Survivor
