On Saturday, May 17, from 10-11 a.m. and 1-2 p.m., L.L.Bean and Kikkan Randall will be hosting an event through the organization Fast & Female, called the Power Hour.

What is a "Power Hour"? These hour-long events are designed to inspire and empower girls ages 9-19 with fun and athletic activities that complement other sports training.
