Our "These Girls Can Run - In her Shoes" project came about because here at TGCR we understand two things. Firstly that there are many barriers which can prevent women from becoming physically active and secondly the power of a community. We decided to use one to help solve the other with some amazing results.
Having the right clothing and footwear can be a huge barrier to some women when they first take up a new physical activity. It may be that women are on a fitness or weight loss journey and don't want to spend huge amounts on expensive clothing which may not fit them for long or it may simply be that they just can't afford to buy everything they need. Since it began in 2015, These Girls Can has proven time and time again that as a community we have the power to do amazing things and with small acts of kindness we can actually change lives and so our "In her Shoes" project was born.
Since it's launch we have received donation after donation of sports clothing and footwear for females. We have tops, leggings, trainers and more and already we have started to forward those items on to ladies who need them. In just a short space of time we are already making a difference.
If you have any items to donate please get in touch. If you feel you could benefit from some of these items or know anyone who could please don't be embarrassed. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, tell us what you need and we will do our best to help you.
