Girls came together for a week of confidence building, friendships and girl power in Tsawwassen last week.
Using creative running games, Sole Girls empowers girls ages six to 12 with tools to develop healthy ideas about body image, media, healthy living, peers and self-esteem.
According to the Canadian Women's Foundation, more than 50 per cent of all girls say they wish they were someone else. As girls enter adolescence, from ages nine to 13, their confidence declines and they are likely to experience higher rates of depression. Sole Girls is a program designed to offer girls a safe, inclusive place during their tween years. The program empowers girls to love who they are and become leaders who are mentally and physically confident.
This fall, Sole Girls will be running weekly sessions in Delta featuring fun physical activity, mentorship and girl empowerment. Connect with girls in high school and university while preparing mentally and physically to run a 5km fun run.
Sole Girls weekly sessions run for one hour and 45 minutes.
