Get your camera out for This Girl Can Week

In support of This Girl Can Week (9-15 October), Mornington Peninsula Shire in partnership with Belgravia Leisure and Peninsula Health are encouraging women and girls – whatever their age, size, background or ability – to share a photo of themselves 'springing into spring'. Whether that’s a walk around the block, stretching in the sunshine or playing soccer with the kids, it’s about celebrating what women and girls can do!

This Girl Can aims to empower all women and girls to enjoy the benefits of moving your body and feeling comfortable to be active as you are, no matter your identity, age, fitness or ability. This Girl Can forms part of the Shire's commitment to promoting wellbeing and achieving gender equality as highlighted in our Council and Wellbeing Plan and Gender Equality Strategy.  

The initiative is led by VicHealth with the aim of advocating and celebrating all women – cis, trans, non-binary and gender diverse – to get active, without judgement in supportive and welcoming environments. Last year, more than 273,000 Victorian women aged 18–65 were inspired to get active during This Girl Can.

Enter our competition and go in the draw to win a $200 Rebel Sport voucher for first prize, $100 Rebel Sport voucher for second prize and $50 Rebel Sport voucher for third prize.
