LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - For seven days, residents of Louisville will have access to all YMCA area branches.

The YMCA of Greater Louisville is opening its doors and offering free classes from September 2 through September 8.

The event will also serve as a way to connect with others in the community.

“The YMCA is pleased to invite the community to any of our locations to set goals and establish methods to reduce chronic illness and to achieve your greatest health potential," said Steve Tarver, President and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Louisville. "The Y offers caring staff and a fun environment.”
