The public is invited to check out the Y's second annual event, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, to be held Saturday Oct. 2 at all three area branches located in Liverpool, Fayetteville and in downtown Syracuse.
The day will re-introduce the Y's well-being program, free to both members and nonmembers, which is designed to address the interests of cancer survivors. More than 100 people have participated in the program since its inception last October. (see related story to left)
