Wednesday, September 4 - Wednesday, October 16

SDSU Extension will host Walk With Ease program from September 4 to October 16, 2019 at the First Lutheran Church (337 8th Street, Brookings, SD 57006).

Participants will meet each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from Noon - 1:00 PM CST. Sessions include a brief education discussion, warm-up and cool-down exercises, and a 10 - 35 minute walk at your own pace. You can also do the activities and exercises on your own using the class materials. If you use a device like a cane or a walker to help you get around, you can still participate in the program.

This program is certified by the Arthritis Foundation and doctor recommended. The Arthritis Foundation Walk With Ease Program is an exercise program that can reduce pain and improve overall health.
