Who We Are

The Virginia Department of Health and the Arthritis Foundation offers the Walk with Ease (WWE) program. The program helps people living with arthritis better manage their pain and is also ideal for people without arthritis who want to make walking a regular habit. Led by a certified Arthritis Foundation Peer Leader, this program has been shown to reduce pain and increase balance and walking pace. During the six-week WWE program, participants are encouraged to walk three times a week.

In a self-directed format, walkers read the WWE book and walk on their own. The program is offered to individuals who can be on their feet for 10 minutes without increasing their pain.
