Dec 05, 2018

Rockland — Girls on the Run, a youth development program ,seeks to expand in the Midcoast. The public is invited to the Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 6 p.m. to learn more about the program and how to start a site.

Current coach and Midcoast Regional Coordinator Caroline Moore will be there to introduce the program and answer questions about starting a site. The discussion will be aimed at parents interested in having their daughters participate, teachers who want to start a site, community members interested in coaching or volunteering, and those who are just wondering what Girls on the Run is.

Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development program that meets after school. Girls learn their worth comes from within, that healthy relationships matter and that they can be a force for good in their community through a fun, experience-based curriculum that uses running to teach these lessons.

Girls meet twice a week over the course of a 10-week season, and build up to running a celebratory 5K at the end of the season. Current and past sites include the Pen Bay YMCA, Camden-Rockport Elementary School, Islesboro Central School, St. George School, Capt. Albert Stevens School, Ames School, Walker School and Troy Central School. For more information contact Moore at
