Walk With Ease Program Comes to Bandon
This is a weekly event, running on Monday, Wednesday, Friday from August 25, 2014 through October 3, 2014.
The Arthritis Foundation’s Walk With Ease program will be offered starting Aug 25 in Bandon, and running through Oct 3. Walk With Ease is a structured walking program designed to help people living with arthritis better manage their pain and is also ideal for people without arthritis who want to make walking a daily habit.
Walk With Ease offers support, information and tools to help participants develop successful exercise routines. During the 6-week program, participants will learn proper stretching and pain management techniques, as well as build stamina and walking pace. The program can even be modified to meet the needs of individual participants so that each person can develop an exercise routine that fits his or her unique goals. If you can be on your feet for 10 minutes without increased pain, you will most likely have success with Walk With Ease.
The class meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 798 Franklin Ave in Bandon from 10 to 11 am. To register, contact Nancy at 541-297-6983 or for more information, call OSU Extension at 541-572-5263 ext 292. Before starting any exercise program, always check with your physician.
