Westborough – The United Bank Foundation recently announced an $8,000 grant to expand the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program for cancer survivors to the Y's Boroughs Family branch in Westborough, allowing easier access to the program for residents of Westborough, Northborough, and Shrewsbury.

The program was previously only available at the Y's Greendale Family Branch in North Worcester.

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is the only free health and well-being program in Central Massachusetts that focuses on the cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, flexibility, and overall well-being of cancer survivors. To date, approximately 6,000 survivors nationwide have participated in this unique program, a collaboration between the YMCA of the USA and the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
