CI-16 This Girl Can – VicHealth
VicHealth is proudly partnering with Sport England to deliver our This Girl Can – Victoria campaign.
VicHealth will deliver a new Victorian version of the highly successful Sport England campaign, showcasing real local Victorian women giving it a go and getting active regardless of their fitness level, ability or how they look.
This highly successful and insightful campaign works to help women overcome the fear of judgement that stops too many of us from getting physically active. VicHealth research shows that concerns about ability, priorities and appearance stop many Victorian women are from being as physically active as they would like to be. This Girl Can aims to break down this fear of judgement as a barrier and celebrate women being all kinds of active.
About This Girl Can - Victoria campaign: VicHealth is calling on Victorian women who are all kinds of active to share their story to inspire other women to be active too. By getting involved, women across the state will have the chance to feature in VicHealth’s new local version of the This Girl Can campaign. Women can get involved by uploading a short video at thisgirlcan.com.au, and joining the online community on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
How you can help: You can support the campaign by encouraging women in your workplace, clubs and networks to get involved and share their story. VicHealth wants to ensure we are reaching women far and wide, across all communities, ability levels and a cross-section of activities. By sharing this opportunity with your networks, you can help us achieve this diverse representation in the campaign.
Please visit the This Girl Can - Victoria website to see some of the inspiring stories we’ve gathered so far, and share this opportunity far and wide.
