Female marathon runner for This Girl Can

This Girl Can

This Girl Can – Victoria is here to celebrate and support Victorian women (yep, you!) embracing physical activity in a way that suits you. Whether it’s a little or a lot, what matters is getting some movement into your day.

While many of us know that exercising is important for our physical and mental health, that doesn’t change the fact that half of us aren’t getting enough exercise each week.

Why? Victorian women have told us that a big part of not trying new activities or getting involved in sport is a fear of being judged, or not being fit enough to start. Not to mention, twice as many women than men put off getting active because they’re worried about what other people think – how unfair is that? Sports, gyms and moving your body are for everybody (literally, every body).

Knox City Council has received funding from VicHealth to get you active in Knox.

Take the #thisgirlcanknox challenge

Set yourself a goal to get more active over November. Many of us have not able to do our usual activities, but it's time to Be Kind to ourselves and get our bodies moving again! Here’s some ideas:

And post about your adventures with the hashtag across social media.
