FARMINGTON -- EveryBody is on the move in Franklin County. The campaign that encourages kids and teens in Franklin County to get out, get moving, and try something new has just launched a website: EveryBodyOnTheMove.org.
EveryBodyOnTheMove.org encourages kids (and their parents) to find out about physical activities happening in Franklin County that are enjoyable and affordable -- in fact, most programs are free.
Schools, businesses and groups are welcome to share their own events and activities with the rest of the community, so that everyone knows where to go for healthy body-moving fun.
Newly added programs include:
- Rangeley FitKidz! at the Rangeley Fitness Center from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays. Students in grades 5 to 12 of any fitness level will receive physical training, plus free membership for the duration of the program. Registrations are ongoing through June 2. Free.
- Let's Go Afterschool! at Stratton School from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays. This program is for students in grades one to four. Registration is ongoing through Tuesday, May 27. Cost is $1 a day.
- Strong Spring Walking Program at Strong School from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays during May. Free.
Summer activities at Rangeley Fitness Center, Strong Elementary School and other locations will be coming soon.
"There are so many benefits for kids and teens to get moving, even if they've never tried any sports or physical activity before," said Laurie Soucy, EveryBody's programming director. "Our new website is a clearinghouse for all the fun things that are happening in Franklin County."
