All 13 branches of the YMCA of Greater Boston are offering free 2013 memberships to victims of the Marathon bombings and free one-month memberships to local first responders.

“It’s at times like these that our community needs to come together to heal,” said a statement from YMCA of Greater Boston CEO Kevin Washington. “We all feel an acute need to extend ourselves in any way we can to offer support.”

“Since the YMCA stands for healthy living and social responsibility, we thought we could uniquely give back to the victims who are learning to find their strength and physical well-being again,” he added. “In the spirit of the Boston Marathon and the City of Boston, we are pleased to serve those affected by the bombings in their healing process.”

Memberships for emergency service personnel, including police, firefighters and emergency medical technicians, will be free during May.

Memberships for bombing victims will be free through the end of 2013.
