The City of Casey is committed to helping women and girls in our community to get active. That’s why we’re proudly supporting the Victorian Government’s This Girl Can campaign. In support of the campaign, we’re showcasing a series of community run events that aims to encourage more women and girls to get involved in sport and physical activity.
We are passionate about improving the health and well-being of Casey women. No matter your age, background, ability, fitness level, shape or size, you can embrace exercise in any way that suits you and learn to lead a healthier and happier life!
Why it's important
It’s widely known that being active is important for our physical and mental health. But research shows:
- that most adults aren’t getting enough exercise in their week
- females of all ages generally have lower physical activity participation rates than males
- participation in sport and active recreation declines as females get older
- female participation through sporting or recreational clubs is also lower compared to males
