Our Goal

Our goal is not only to raise awareness of this problem, but also to fund childhood obesity programs that we know work. The YMCA’s Healthy, Fit and Strong program (formerly P.A.C.E.S) helps families understand and make healthier lifestyle and eating choices. Healthy, Fit and Strong has reached over 3,000 kids in our community so far. Included in this program is nutritional education for parents of obese children. The YMCA also provides an after-school physical activity curriculum and fitness classes for the entire family.

All of the net funds raised by the Mistletoe Run will go toward fighting childhood obesity. We need your support, now more than ever.

YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program

CHANGE TODAY FOR A HEALTHIER FUTURE

An estimated one of every three U.S. adults has prediabetes, yet just 7% of those with prediabetes know they have it.

Are you or someone you know at risk? Take the quiz now to find out.

You can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes and gain tools for healthy living. If you are at risk for type 2 diabetes, the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program provides a supportive environment where you can work with others in a small group setting to learn how to adopt healthy habits to reduce your chances of developing the disease.

The program, which is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach in a classroom setting, is delivered over a 12-month period, beginning with 16 weekly sessions followed by monthly maintenance. You will learn strategies for eating healthier, increasing your physical activity and making other changes that will improve your overall health and well-being. National Institutes of Health research has proven that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of cases of type 2 diabetes by almost 60%.
