Welcome to Fit Girls 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 and spring. 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 coming fall.
Recent Happenings and Updates
FIT GIRLS 5K
May 21, 2022
Over 55 Fit Girls and Coaches ran their end of season 5K on May 21st. It was an amazing day for the girls and in typical Maine weather, drizzle, then clearing.
In Fit Girls, we encourage girls to find their pace, do their personal best and always think of themselves strong. These girls and coaches continue to amaze us with their kindness, their generous spirit and commitment. Their accomplishments and pride radiated at the Fit Girls 5K.
Thanks to everyone who made it happen including the Lodge#156 of Wilton for use of the parking lot and facility near the rail trail.
Kindness rocks and so do the girls in Fit Girls! Working on "kindness rocks" to pass on to the residents at one of the nursing homes in Farmington. All while getting energized for our 5K in a few weeks! These girls are amazing!

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."
