The Heights
8001 Dale Ave.
Richmond Heights, MO 63117

The YWBCP is partnering with the Heights community center to offer a weekly exercise program for all young adults with cancer. The class will be held each week on Thursdays. Joy Jones, a certified personal trainer and supporter of YWBCP, will lead the program. Registration is required in advance – no exceptions will be made. To register, contact Kim Selig at 314-747-7156 or seligk@wudosis.wustl.edu. Those who register will receive a pass to enter the Heights facility for this specific program only.

The YWBCP has developed this group for several reasons. An increasing amount of data demonstrates the benefits of regular activity and exercise among people diagnosed with cancer. Maintaining a regular exercise routine is tough. This group will provide you with instruction and support to rid yourself of excuses and return to exercising on a regular basis. We also wish to expand our young adult cancer survivor community. The group allows you to meet with and learn from other young adult cancer survivors.
