Arthritis Foundation’s Free Six-Week “Walk with Ease” Program to be Offered by COSA in Upper Chichester Beginning March 19

The Delaware County Office of Services for the Aging (COSA), in partnership with Upper Chichester Township Parks and Recreation, and the PA Department of Aging (PDA) is sponsoring the nationally recognized Arthritis Foundation “Walk with Ease” Program for those 60 and older who need relief from arthritis pain or just want to remain active.

The program will be held once per week for six weeks on Tuesdays, from March 19 through April 23, 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., at the Upper Chichester Fieldhouse, 8500 Furey Road, in Upper Chichester.

This evidence-based program is proven to:

  • Reduce the pain and discomfort of arthritis
  • Increase balance, strength, and walking pace
  • Build confidence in the ability to be physically active
  • Improve overall health

Each participant will receive the Arthritis Foundation’s Walk with Ease Guidebook, which will serve as an essential tool in their journey towards a healthier lifestyle, providing valuable information, techniques for managing arthritis pain, and strategies for maintaining an active lifestyle.

With support from their leader and peer group, and guidance from the Walk with Ease Guidebook, participants will walk once per week as a group and at least two other times per week on their own, at their own pace.

The combination of practical walking activities and the comprehensive guidebook equips participants with the resources needed to achieve significant health improvements.

Program costs are covered by COSA, so the program is FREE, however class size is limited.

To register, please contact COSA by phone at (610) 872-1383 or send an email to and provide your name, address, phone number, and email address.
