Welcome to Fit Girls 2021-2022.
We continue to celebrate all that our program does for girls in western Maine. We were grateful to be able to be in-person this fall. Thank you to all who continue to support our program.
We continue to pay attention to the Maine CDC and to RSU 9 as to how we continue our programming safely.
We are excited for the girls in 4th and 5th grades who participated and we hope additional girls will want to join this spring.

Fit Girls were inspired by members of the greater Farmington community this past week when Lori Koban, a UMF teacher, presented them with a check from funds raised at the Goodbye Covid Marathon Week. It was held between April 12 - April 18. The goal was to complete 26.2 miles running and/or walking during that time.
In Fit Girls, we encourage girls to find their pace, do their personal best and always think of themselves strong. These community members amazed us with their kindness, their generous spirit and commitment. Thank you so much!
OUR SPRING PICK
"Gertie thinks that she has to be the best 5th grader in the universe. She must be the smartest and have the best summer speech. The girls will love Gertie as a character for her determination and always being on a mission. While reading this book, the girls will see qualities about themselves and realize that some girls are great at running, some girls are generous, some are funny and more. They will realize, we are all great in some way."
Fall Fit Girls Made Strides
The Fit Girls program concluded this fall with the girls logging over 500,000 steps! We are impressed with their strength and their continued positive attitudes.
"Creative is strong"
