Walk with Ease

Did you know that 1 in 4 (25%) adults across the country are inactive? Among adults 50+ that statistic increases to 28%! Join Gloucester Parks, Recreation, and Tourism’s Walk With Ease program and engage in a fun physical activity program.

Gloucester PRT has won a grant from NRPA to have staff trained as instructors in the Arthritis Foundation’s Walk With Ease program. This 6-week program was written specifically for those with arthritis, but is a resource for anyone.

Participants will meet 3 times per week for an hour. Sessions include an informational element, stretching & walking. Participants should wear comfy shoes and dress for the weather. Mon/Wed/Fri, 9:00-10:00 am, meeting at the Stewart Building on Main Street. Deadline for regirstation is May 1, and you can register at this link:
