The North Canton YMCA will hold its annual Tour de Vaughn to benefit the Living Strong Living Well program for adult cancer survivors.

Sunday, Oct. 19

1 p.m. - 4 p.m.

North Canton YMCA

The Tour de Vaughn is a cycling event named in memory of Vaughn Prude, a cycling instructor at the Y, whose life was cut short by prostate cancer. Participants sign up to ride stationary bicycles in half-hour increments. Cost per time slot is $25. Participants can also secure pledges for their rides.

All money raised is used to offset expenses of the Living Strong Living Well program, a small-group strength and fitness training program. Exercises focus on improving balance, strength and endurance. A weekly nutrition component is provided by the Aultman North Canton Medical Group. The Y hopes to be able to raise enough funds to offer an evening class time in addition to its Tuesday/Thursday class.

Those who wish to participate in Tour de Vaughn can sign up at the YMCA front desk or online at www.ymcastark.org/north-canton-community-building-ymca. Click on the the “online registration” link and enter “Tour de Vaughn” in the program field.
