When the Cedar Rapids Metro YMCA was selected by its national organization as a site for a LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program, a grant from the Lil’ Drug Store Products, Inc. Donor-Advised Fund at the Community Foundation helped to implement the program which served 176 participants in the first year.  The program empowers adult cancer survivors to improve functional capacity and increase their quality of life through a fitness and strength program.  Most participants indicated improvements in strength, balance and cardiovascular endurance; and nearly all participants indicated an improvement in their quality of life.
