A 6-week low-intensity walking program is starting soon in Hermiston. While part of the focus is to help with arthritis pain, anyone who wants to get more active is invited to participate.
The Arthritis Foundation’s Walk with Ease program can teach people how to safely make physical activity a part of everyday life. It also assists participants with increased balance and strength, as well as improving overall health.
Offered through Good Shepherd Health Care System, the program fee is $10, which includes an Arthritis Foundation handbook. Open to all ages, pre-registration is required for the class, which begins Monday, March 21 at Good Shepherd, 610 N.W. 11th St., Hermiston. The sessions are Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, 9-10 a.m. at the hospital, 610 N.W. 11th St., Hermiston.
