Henderson Walk With Ease
March 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Walk With Ease is the Arthritis Foundation’s program that is proven to reduce the pain of arthritis and improve your overall health. The Kerr-Tar Area Agency on Aging will be conducting this program for our region this spring. No matter if you need relief from arthritis pain or just want to be active, this 6 week program can teach you how to safely make physical activity part of your every day life. The program includes a guidebook and a walking schedule to get you safely moving toward better health.
Studies by the Thurston Arthritis Research Center and the Institute on Aging of the University of North Carolina show that Walk With Ease is proven to:
- Reduce the pain and discomfort of arthritis
- Increase balance, strength, and walking pace
- Build confidence in your ability to be physically active
- Improve overall health
There will be a Walk With Ease group session starting in Henderson and will meet Monday, Tuesday, and Friday for 6 weeks, from March 7-April 14, 2022. Participants will meet at 11:00 am at Aycock Recreation Center. Trained group exercise leaders begin each session with a pre-walk discussion covering a specified topic related to exercise and arthritis, followed by a 10-40 minute walk that includes a warm-up and a cool-down. To register for this session, contact Susan Tucker at 252-436-2040 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
