The Farmington Valley YMCA has announced a $2,500 donation from Command Corporation, an East Granby-based alarm company that provides security services to homes and businesses from Boston to Virginia.
The donation will support the Change for Life program, which encourages people with a body mass index of 40 or greater to make significant life changes. Program participants work with the YMCA’s nutritionist, wellness director, and team of personal trainers to set achievable goals and make healthier choices. 

The Farmington Valley YMCA developed the Change for Life Program two years ago based on the model of the Biggest Loser Resort so that Farmington Valley residents could find support close to home as they committed to living healthier lives. 

Command Corporation, the exclusive provider of security services to the Farmington Valley YMCA, recently learned of the program when meeting with the Executive Director Marcy Yanus.  

“We appreciate all that the Farmington Valley YMCA does for our community,” said John Bazyk, Command Corporation’s Director of Sales & Marketing.
“Command is a local, family-owned company and we’re committed to supporting programs like Change for Life.” 

“As a non-profit organization, the YMCA looks to serve as much of our community as we can,” Yanus said. “This donation from Command Corporation will allow us to extend our reach so that more people can benefit from a program that has already proven to be life-changing for our participants.”  

Located in Granby, the Farmington Valley YMCA serves Avon, Burlington, Canton, East Granby, Granby, Hartland, Simsbury, Suffield and Windsor Locks. In addition to aquatics and fitness programs, the YMCA offers childcare, nutritional counseling, and LIVESTRONG® programs and runs two camps – Camp Farmington Valley and Camp Chase.
