Everyone Active is celebrating the inspirational women of Essex with the launch of its ‘Our Girls Can’ campaign at Basildon Sporting Village, Eversley Leisure Centre and Wickford Swim and Fitness Centre.
The sports and leisure operator, which manages the facilities in partnership with Basildon Council, officially launched the campaign on International Women’s Day (8th March 2015) to celebrate women getting active and achieving their goals.
The campaign invites people to nominate women, including any friends, family, or workmates of any age and ability, that have inspired them to take on a new, active challenge. Basildon Sporting Village, Eversley Leisure Centre and Wickford Swim and Fitness Centre will then pick a local winner who will be entered into a national prize draw to win some exciting prizes, including £500 towards a well-deserved holiday.
Nominations can be made via the Basildon Sporting Village, Eversley Leisure Centre and Wickford Swim and Fitness Centre Facebook and Twitter pages, by summarising in 120 characters how their nomination has inspired them to be more active. *Terms and Conditions apply.
The competition is being held in support of Sport England’s national This Girl Can campaign, which was launched earlier this year to celebrate active women everywhere.
Everyone Active General Manager Tom Fletcher said: “We’re very excited to be launching the Our Girls Can campaign. It’s the ideal opportunity for us all to show our appreciation for the unsung female heroes in our community and celebrate those that have inspired us to achieve our goals.”
“Sport England has done a great job of empowering women across the UK through their campaign and we want to help continue that message in Essex. We’re encouraging everyone to get involved and make their nomination!”
Nominations can be made before 8th April 2015. The winner will be chosen by the centre and announced on 15th April 2015 before being entered into a national prize draw to win £500 in holiday vouchers.
