What’s the story so far?
Amazing things have happened across Solihull since the start of Solihull Girls Can. Hundreds of local women and girls are feeling the benefits of getting more active, more often. They’re shaking things up, having fun, and achieving things they never thought they could.
‘I joined Zumba to make new friends find some me time and get back my love of dancing. I walk a lot as it helps the kids keep active and gives me thinking time and lifts my mood.’
‘Some time away from caring for children, time to myself!’
‘I love contact sports. I like feeling like I did something. I like the social aspect. Fun and laughter. Without sports I would be lonely.’
