Girls on the Run Maine, DEFY programs to begin in September



ELLSWORTH — September is set to be a big month for local fitness efforts in Ellsworth with Girls on the Run Maine and the Down East Family YMCA starting a few annual programs.

On Monday, Sept. 2, DEFY will begin its September fitness schedule. Among the Y’s offerings this year are the preschool “Wiggle your Waggles” (open to all Y day cares and just $1 apiece for children ages 3-5) from 10:30-11 a.m. on Mondays and a new cardio kickboxing class from 6:30-7 p.m. Tuesdays.

The following Monday, Sept. 9, Girls on the Run Maine will begin its 2019 campaign with its first session of the year at DEFY. The program, which offers lessons “designed to build girls’ self-worth and help them feel greater confidence in who they are,” will be held every Monday and Tuesday through mid-November.

Registration for Girls on the Run is available online via the Maine chapter’s website. For more information about the program, contact Kim Formby at [email protected]
