Girls on the Run program starting

ELLSWORTH — Girls on the Run, a 10-week program for girls in grades 3-5 at the Down East Family YMCA, is set to begin its 2018 campaign next week.

Trained volunteer coaches use research-based curricula to teach foundational lessons through dynamic discussions, activities and running games.

Over the course of the program, participants develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness.

Practice times are Mondays and Thursdays from 4-5:30 p.m. at the Down East Family YMCA. The first session will be held Monday, Sept. 10.

Registration is open online via the Girls on the Run Maine website. For more information, contact Kim Formby at [email protected].
