Stepping Stones for Stella

Happy New Year, Fit Girl Families!  As the year and season wind down, we wanted to share with you the result of the groups' community outreach for Stepping Stones for Stella (http://www.steppingstonesforstella.org).  Because of your kindness, the Fit Girls were able to successfully raise enough money to fund one buggy for a child released from Spaulding Rehab Hospital!  Through the coin drive and some generous independent donations, Fit Girls raised just over $900 for Stepping Stones for Stella to continue their mission of providing buggies for children with disabilities to enjoy the outdoors with their friends and families.  Great job, girls!

Here is the thank-you note from Stella and her mom, Nicole:

In addition to running, part of Fit Girls is community outreach and connecting to a cause to which the girls can relate and understand.  Thank you to all of our Fit Girls' families for your support of this important piece of the Fit Girls program. 

Keep running, and keep your minds and hearts healthy!

See you in 2014!

Seaside Run Club

We are very excited to announce the newly formed Seaside Run Club, an affiliate of the Road Runners Club of America and through RRCA, we are a 501(c)3 organization!  Becoming an official run club and nonprofit is an exciting step to help keep the Fit Girls program active and growing. 

Fit Girls Run Club will continue to run in our usual fashion, with our usual coaches and amazing volunteers.  Fit Girls Run Club Marblehead is now a program of Seaside Run Club.  This is mostly an administrative change, and the Fit Girls program will continue to run just as it has in the past.

We had a great first day today!  We are excited about the coming weeks, and the Reindeer Run in December.  We're going to have some fun and a lot of laughs while logging many miles in and around Marblehead together!

Reminders for Fit Girls: Fall 2013

  • We meet from 2:45-4:00pm in Cafeteria B at Village and will head outside to walk/run as long as the weather cooperates.  On rainy days, we will utilize the gymnasium.
  • Girls should bring a NUT FREE snack and a water bottle every day!
  • From 2:15-2:45, the girls have time to attend homework club, change their clothes, have a snack, and/or work on homework in the cafeteria before we get started.
  • Please make sure appropriate clothing and shoe choices are made for running, taking into consideration the temperature and forecast.
  • If your daughter is unable to attend, will be late, or needs to leave early on any given day, please give us notice via email (fitgirlsmhd@gmail.com).  We take attendance at each session, and since we are usually out of the building for the sessions, we want to ensure each and every girl is accounted for at all times.  A quick email is really helpful!
  • Pick-up will be outside the cafeteria doors in the 6th grade wing.
