This Girl Can

This Girl Can

Fear of judgement can stop many of us from taking part in exercise, but as thousands of women up and down the country are proving, it really doesn’t have to…

This Girl Can is a celebration of the active women everywhere who are taking part in exercise no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get.  It is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations to inspire more women and girls to become active, and conquer fear of judgement as the primary barrier.

Remember…. Just 30minutes a day of moderate exercise can reduce your risk of developing breast cancer by 20%.
