AARP Colorado is looking for a few good volunteers to help us lead a new program, the AARPCO Colorado Springs Walking Group, coming to Colorado Springs. We will be creating a hybrid walking group where members can walk independently a few times a week and connect virtually with AARP volunteers and other members, offering a fun and safe way to establish a walking habit. AARP walking group leaders will provide helpful information from AARP resources, tips from the Arthritis Foundation’s Walk with Ease Guide, share experiences, and make connections during a weekly zoom meeting. The Colorado Springs Walking Group is designed to encourage healthy lifestyles, social engagement in a safe manner, and a whole lot of fun! AARP Colorado will provide all the materials and training you will need.
