As the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, with the guidance and recommendations from our Board of Directors, and state and local officials, the Kearney Family YMCA is adapting to adjust operations and has announced that we will be closing at 7:00pm on Tuesday, March 17th. We will be evaluating (on a weekly basis) when the safest time to reopen the facility will be, with guidance from our Board of Directors, the City of Kearney, and the hospitals in Kearney. Our YMCA leadership team will continue to monitor the community impact of the situation and make decisions about reopening on an ongoing basis.

Next classes will start in March.

In 2018 we were 1 of 25 YMCA’s in the Nation to be granted the privilege to offer this program to our community. This program is offered at no charge, includes membership for the household, and is an individualized workout program to those who have fought or are fighting the battle with cancer.

If you are interested, complete the Interest form on the LIVESTRONG AT YMCA page and we will contact you to set up an intake time.
