Richmond Football Club's fully owned subsidiary business Aligned Leisure will come to the party for VicHealth’s inaugural This Girl Can Week, with free health activities for women every day from March 18 to 24.
Aligned Leisure, which has complexes right across the state in Mildura, Wodonga, Nilumbik and Cardinia, is offering classes for women and girls who want to get active but aren’t sure about how to take the first step.
The initiative aims to build on the momentum created by the highly successful campaign that launched in March last year and inspired 1 in 7 Victorian women to get moving in 2018.
The campaign features everyday Victorian women and is about empowering women to feel comfortable in their bodies and in public spaces – regardless of their ability, how they look or how sweaty they get.
Minister for Health Jenny Mikakos praised the campaign stating that the initiative was all about encouraging women to smash antiquated stereotypes surrounding what they can and can’t do in the gym, on the sporting field and in the street.
“It’s long overdue and it’s having a massive impact,” she added.
“Women and girls have great role models to look up to – but you don’t have to be an AFLW star or a marathon runner to make the most of a healthy and active lifestyle.”
