This Girl Can celebrates women being active whatever their size, ability, or previous experience.
We are pleased to support This Girl Can. The campaign celebrates active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.
International Women’s Day Parkrun
To celebrate International Women’s Day on the 7 March This Girl Can teamed up with parkrun to encourage women to take part in parkruns across the UK. #IWDparkrun welcomed an astonishing 15,000 additional women and girls at parkruns all around the world. Although #IWDparkrun was held on one day, it is hoped that the impact will be far more long-lasting! Read more on the Parkrun blog.
If you’re a sports club, leisure or youth centre, or simply a group trying to get more active, you could use the campaign to set up women’s sessions or simply put a call out for more women to join you.
We’re always looking for ways to get more people, more active, more often. If you’ve got a This Girl Can project or programme you’d like us to promote please get in touch. We’d also love to hear about your successes or outcomes.
Contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at the office on 01522 730 325.
Come together and share your stories, tips and hints – like the This Girl Can Lincolnshire Facebook page and join a community of women doing what they enjoy whatever their size, ability, or previous experience

About This Girl Can
This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England and delivered in partnership with a wide range of organisations. More men play sport than women at every age, and the aim of This Girl Can is to close the persistent gender gap within sport and activity.
- Research shows two million fewer women than men are active, but 75% of women do want to do more.
- A primary barrier for women getting into sport and physical activity is fear of judgement.
- This Girl Can celebrates the active women everywhere who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look, or how sweaty they might get.
This Girl Can is Developed by Sport England, and promoted locally by us at Active Lincolnshire,
