WE LOVE OUR COACHES

Thank you for all you do for our Fit Girls:

Merrily Welch, Ali Butler, Katie Perry, Patti Murray, Tiffany Baker, Marcia Parker, Catherine Dennis and Tina Davis

Fit Girls is super excited to be a recipient of an Onion Foundation grant which will be used to support our Run and Read into Summer Camp in July 2019. The Onion Foundation's vision “supports organizations that empower people in their communities to live healthy vibrant lives”.

Fit Girls is very grateful for being selected as a recipient of this grant and will use the funds to conduct our summer camp which theme will revolve around author Kate Beasley’s book, Gertie’s Leap to Greatness.  Thanks to the grant, a copy of the book will be given to each girl and even the author herself will be skyping with the girls during the camp week. The generosity of so many has helped keep the summer camp at zero cost to the girls and their families which is part of the Fit Girl’s mission.

The girls will spend each morning: focusing on an activity surrounding the story which will include creating a portfolio; playing energizing games; yoga and running; painting; a nature scavenger hunt; a group skit; and just like the after school programs, building confidence and having fun with friends. The Fit Girls program is empowering girls through fitness, reading good books and community service. Thank you, Onion Foundation, for your kind and generous support!

Fit Girls is one recipient of the Community 150 campaign of Franklin Savings Bank.  We are so grateful for the support Franklin Savings Bank extends to the community.  Non-profits in our area are so lucky to have a friend In Franklin Savings Bank. Thank you Franklin Savings Bank! Fit Girls will continue to help girls in our area grow, gain confidence and become budding runners and readers!

Fit Girls is the Recipient of a Lois Lenski Covey Foundation Grant

 

"The purposes of The Lois Lenski Covey Foundation are to advance literacy and foster a love of reading among underserved and at-risk children and youth.

 

Lois Lenski, celebrated author and illustrator of over one hundred children's books and the 1946 Newbery medalist for Strawberry Girl, established the Foundation as a charitable institute 50 years ago. Since then the Foundation has assisted over 400 organizations in their efforts to nurture reading skills, gain access to books, and instill a love of reading."

Fit Girls is the recipient of the 2018 Bookmobile Grant and will use the funds for the purchase of books for our "rolling library" offered at each of the elementary schools in RSU 9. Fit Girls is greatly appreciative to be able to give girls in our area this expanded reading opportunity.

We would also like to thank Kenny Brechner and Devaney, Doak and Garrett Booksellers, for the guidance and support of selecting wonderful books because of this grant.
