This Girl Can Week 2020: Get Involved
There are plenty of fun and free activities on offer in Golden Plains Shire during This Girl Can Week, which runs from 23 to 29 March 2020.
This Girl Can is a Victorian Government campaign to promote physical activity for women and girls. The campaign is dedicated to encouraging more women to give physical activity a shot, whether this is trying something new, returning to a long-lost activity, or visiting a local activity provider or sporting club.
From Haddon to Bannockburn, local community groups, clubs and organisations are running free events for Golden Plains women of all ages across the week:
Monday 23 March
Tuesday 24 March
Wednesday 25 March
Thursday 26 March
Friday 25 March
Saturday 28 March
1pm Barwon Region This Girl Can Celebration at Kardinia Park, Geelong
Sunday 29 March
Please note that some events require registration.
Saturday’s Barwon Region This Girl Can Celebration is a partnership between Golden Plains Shire Council, City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire, Borough of Queenscliffe, G21, Bellarine Community Health, AFL Barwon, VicHealth, Geelong Cats, Active Geelong and GMHBA. The event will feature modified sports activities, a panel of local women sharing their stories on how they stay active, and ending with the Geelong v Collingwood AFLW match for the Geelong Cats’ last home game of the season.
Council, along with its neighbouring G21 councils, received funding from VicHealth to support community groups with grants, as well as regional promotion of This Girl Can Week events throughout the wider Geelong region.
Interested groups with queries on guidelines, deadlines or other questions, can contact Council’s Health and Wellbeing team on 5220 7111 or email GPSHealthandWellbeing@gplains.vic.gov.au.
