SENIOR PROGRAMS

The Arthritis Foundation Walk with Ease Program

Oneonta Family YMCA to Offer Arthritis Foundation’s ‘Walk with Ease’ to Treat Arthritis through Exercise, Group Support

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 52 million Americans have arthritis, including about half of all adults over age 65. Almost 23 million Americans report that the condition limits their physical activity, and members of racial and ethnic minority communities tend to suffer disproportionately. Research has shown that low-intensity physical activity performed on a regular basis can reduce pain, improve functioning, elevate mood and delay the onset of disability.
