The Niagara Falls Family YMCA will offer an open house for those suffering from multiple sclerosis on Saturday, March 24. This event, which will take place at the branch (located at 1317 Portage Road, Niagara Falls) from 10 a.m. to noon, is designed for those individuals with MS who are interested in learning of the benefits of health and wellness.

Susan E. Bennett, a clinical associate professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Science and at the University at Buffalo, will be the featured guest speaker. This event is free and open to the public.

Locally founded in 1852, YMCA Buffalo Niagara is an inclusive association of people committed to a common effort to help individuals and families reach their fullest potential in terms of spirit, mind and body. The YMCA's focus on health and wellness is reflected in the variety of programs that are offered for all ages and abilities. Additionally, collaborations with insurance carriers such as Univera, Independent Health, and BlueCross BlueShield provide the opportunity for those wanting to take the first step toward a healthier lifestyle to do so at the YMCA.

A not-for-profit organization, YMCA Buffalo Niagara serves more than 100,000 people annually through the seven branches located throughout Western New York, YMCA Camp Weona, as well as at more than 40 community-based program sites.
