This Girl Can – week of inspiration

Manningham Council

Ready to get active this spring but need inspiration? Don’t feel ready or have the motivation to get moving? Feel self-conscious and don’t know how or where to start?

Then look no further, This Girl Can Week is back!

We’re supporting This Girl Can week, a VicHealth campaign that aims to inspire and empower women and girls, with an invitation to join in and get active with us regardless of age, size, background, gender identity or ability.

It’s a week that celebrates and encourages diversity in sport and physical activity.

During the week, 9 to 15 October, local sporting clubs and groups are hosting a range of free or low-cost events. The program is designed to provide safe, inclusive and friendly environments for women and girls to get involved.

This Girl Can week is about helping participants overcome fears and feelings about judgement, not being fit enough or not belonging.

Activities will provide the kind of welcoming support you need to get active and participate. Be empowered to focus on how getting active makes you feel, not what others think!

This week also celebrates and encourages women to get involved in a variety of ways; whether it’s a solo workout or the camaraderie of a group or team you’re looking for, the program has you covered.

All activities are free or low-cost, and registrations are required.

Events made possible thanks to our VicHealth Local Government Partnership.
