Arthritis Foundation offers warm water aquatic program

   The Arthritis Foundation Aquatic Program offers an arthritis/water walking program at Columbia Athletic Club in Mill Creek.

   The recreational program is conducted in an 86-degree heated pool. The program provides the opportunity for persons with arthritis or other special needs to feel better and improve the quality of life.

   Program participants are led by trained personnel through a series of specially-designed exercises which can help improve joint flexibility. The warmer water and gentle movements can also help relieve pain and stiffness.

   The program is being co-sponsored by the Washington State Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation. Classes are held four mornings each week.

   For further information, call 425-485-4040 or 425-337-5050 and ask for the membership office.
