ELLSWORTH — Girls on the Run is a 10-week program for girls in grades three through five at the Down East Family YMCA.

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. They will start Monday, Sept. 10.
