Registration is open for Girls on the Run
Registration is now open for Girls on the Run, a twice-weekly, afterschool program for 5th and 6th grade students where trained volunteers lead girls through interactive lessons and movement activities, culminating in a celebratory 5K in June.
Registrations are first-come, first-served and may be made by visiting www.girlsontheruncny.org or by scanning the QR code below. The program is limited to 15 participants.
Practices will begin the week of March 13 at Harry Hoag School and will be held Mondays and Thursdays from 2:45-4:15 p.m., and the 5K will be held June 4. As the season progresses, practice may extend to 4:30 p.m. to accommodate more activity and prepare for the race.
Fort Plain’s Girls on the Run volunteers are Kristy McFee , Meagan Heiser, Stephanie Paradiso, Tracey Conover and Lauri Broady.
The program cost varies based on income. Upon registration, you will be able to select the payment option that suits your family. Thanks to the graciousness of the Fort Plain Student Council, each girl will receive a $20 discount upon registration! Please use the code: FTPLAIN20
For the program, girls will need:
- Shoes appropriate for running, such as sneakers (no Crocs, flip flops, etc.)
- Clothing appropriate for athletic movement and the weather (cooler days, light rain) that meets the district’s dress code
- A water bottle/drink for practices
- A snack for after school
Girls on the Run participants will have fun, make friends, increase their physical activity levels and learn important life skills, such as teamwork, embracing their strengths and building relationships.
