Girls on the Run Program at Kelly Middle School

UCFS is proud to announce that they have partnered with Kelly Middle School and Girls on the Run to sponsor a Girls on the Run program this fall for 7th and 8th grade girls at Kelly Middle School.  The program is designed to use running to motivate girls, encourage life-long fitness, and build confidence.  UCFS is able to bring Girls on the Run to Kelly Middle School thanks to a generous grant from Dime Bank.

The program runs for 10 weeks and the girls meet twice each week to discuss motivational topics and train toward a 5K run at the culmination of the program.  The girls have a goal of participating in the Norwich Winterfest 5K which takes place Saturday, November 25th.  Volunteers from the community support the girls in their training and serve as mentors.

Dime Bank has been a generous sponsor of UCFS programs and services for many years and is committed to supporting the health and well-being of our community’s youth.  UCFS is grateful for their support in this new endeavor.
