Would you like a little encouragement and a nudge to begin….or continue a walking routine?

It can be hard to get motivated to incorporate regular exercise or movement into our schedules. Maybe joint pain or arthritis have prevented you from walking regularly. We have a solution, you can join our NeighborWalk group and add walking to your routine in a way that is safe and comfortable for you.

AARP Montana is offering you a fun and safe way to establish a walking habit and to share the experience with others during a weekly Zoom video chat. Even if you already walk regularly, it could be fun to join this group and connect “virtually” with others across the country. You might choose to walk alone, but you won’t be alone. This is also a fun way to meet people and make new friends.

You can participate in the 6-week AARP Montana NeighborWalk Program at any point between May 24 and June 28. It is designed for people of all ages and all abilities who are interested in walking.

The program is based on the Arthritis Foundation’s national Walk With Ease Program. You’ll receive the Walk With Ease Participant Guidebook as a NeighborWalk participant. The guidebook, and our weekly Tuesday afternoon video chats provide useful information and tips about developing an individual walking plan.

Participants are encouraged to incorporate independent, self-paced walks 3-times a week. It doesn’t matter how far you walk. If you’re a beginner, you’ll build up to 30 minutes a day, 3-times each week by the end of the program. If you’re more fit when we begin, the sky’s the limit. Whatever your schedule and stamina will support.

The weekly video chat led by AARP volunteers will give you an opportunity to get useful info from the Arthritis Foundation, share your experiences with others, and connect socially. This program offers social distancing, social engagement….and a whole lot of fun.

There will be a weekly video chat led by AARP volunteers each Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET |3:00 p.m. CT | 2:00 p.m. MT | 1:00 p.m. PT and participants will walk independently.

At AARP Montana, we think that a healthy lifestyle can help us all to deal with the daily stress of living.

When you register for the group, we'll send you a free Walk With Ease Participant Guidebook and video chat log-in information.
