The Department of Parks and Recreation was recently awarded a grant from the National Recreation and Park Association to implement walk with Ease (WWE), a free six week exercise program developed by the Arthritis Foundation, that aims to reduce the pain of arthritis and improve overall health for our Prince George's County residents.
WWE classes are one-hour long and are offered three times per week, for six weeks. They consist of a combination of health education as well as warm up/cool down and walking exercises. Classes are taught by Arthritis Foundation-certified leaders, and are open to all county residents. Registration is required.
Whether you are seeking relief from arthritis or desire a more active life, we invite you to experience the benefits of this great free program:
Reduce the pain and discomfort of arthritis
Increase balance and strength
Build your confidence in your ability to be physically active
