Working Together For A Better Community
Our Togetherhood program is a Y member-led volunteer service program that brings together members of all different backgrounds to work side-by-side with neighbors and community partners to plan and implement volunteer projects that strengthen our community. Volunteering improves people's well-being, helps them forge strong relationships, and gives them an outlet to explore their passions and discover their purpose. Join our planning committee and give back, contact Melissa Bowen or call 303 869 3504.
LIVESTRONG at the Y
Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. The Y and the LIVESTRONG Foundation have joined together to create LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a research-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health. Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and self-esteem. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body. Classes are now being formed. Participants need not be a member of the YMCA and the program is free to participants. Please contact Monica Thompson at 720 524 2747 to sign up or get more information here.
