Free Gym Memberships Available to Vets

Press Release

Maine veterans are eligible for a free membership at the Sanford-Springvale YMCA, thanks to a partnership between the YMCA Alliance of Northern New England and US Department of Veterans Affairs.

Since the Togus VA Medical Center closed its gym and swimming pool during the pandemic, veterans have lacked a dedicated facility to support their wellness. This new partnership provides qualified veterans with the opportunity to join their local YMCA, free of charge, with a referral from their VA Maine primary care physician.

“The Maine YMCAs are extremely grateful to the US Department of Veterans Affairs, VA Maine Healthcare System for recognizing the Y’s ability to support our nation’s heroes through access to our facilities and programming. We look forward to connecting Maine veterans to the YMCA over the next five years and beyond,” said Meagan Hamblett, CEO of the YMCA Alliance of Northern New England.

Maine veterans interested in accessing this benefit must receive a referral from their VA Maine primary care physician. YMCA locations can be viewed here: https://nneymcas.org/find-your-ymca/
