Urban Seniors on the Move

Walk With Ease Program A recent article in the Portland Observer detailed the Urban League of Portland’s Multicultural Senior Center‘s new Walk with Ease program. The six week program, designed to reduce pain, increase balance and strength, and improve overall health, kicked off this month with a walk at the Lloyd Center.  The program, which was launched by Meals on Wheels People, aims to take a group of 10 to 12 walkers aged 60+ on two to three trips weekly. The goal is to have participants work up to 45 minute walks. Each participant is provided with a journal to log their walking habits.  If you’re interested in the program, call our Multicultural Senior Center Director Arleta Christian at 503-988-3558.
