A grant from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) gave us a solution to this roadblock. Through this grant, Pierre Parks and Recreation will be able to offer the Arthritis Foundation?s Walk With Ease (WWE) program to older adults in our community. The WWE program is a low-impact group-based walking program designed for people with arthritis, but anyone looking to incorporate physical activity into their lifestyle can participate, and it is especially great for older adults. The six-week program, which meets three times a week for an hour, includes more than just walking. It also includes time for stretching and cooling down exercises.
