THIS GIRL CAN (and so can you!)


Next week is the This Girl Can campaign week - focusing on getting all the gals exercising and shaking them hips! This Girl Can is a national campaign that aims to empower and increase confidence in girls playing sport, alongside advancing gender equality in all sports worldwide. From the 20th to the 26th November, most Universities are putting on free events to encourage girls across the UK to get active and try out new sports and classes. These include, fun runs, exercise classes, dance-a-thons, football tournaments and much much more - including Napathons! Sooooo I thought I would throw a little post together all about the events going on across a few universities, so YOU can get involved! I have tried to find most universities timetables, however some timetables are only available to students of that University so make sure you check your sports centres timetables if you're interested...enjoy!

And that's your lot girlies... a snapshot of some of the amazing activities going on across the UK and its' universities. Personally, the girls and I will be going along to a few of the events in Newcastle, including the run and the exercise classes, and we may even give Cheerleading a go - *dusts off the fancy dress pom poms*. I hope this has helped to show you just how many opportunities there are to get active and get involved in some amazing sports and activities at your university. And even if you're not at uni, there are so many opportunities going on next week for you too! Just visit the This Girl Can website for more information. 

Let me know if you give any of these a go, or if you have any burning questions pop 'em down below!



Lots and lots of love, Katie xo
