It's For Girls
The Western People West of Ireland Women’s Mini Marathon through Mayo Sports Partnership are working together to encourage schools across County Mayo to increase girls’ fitness levels by training to walk or jog the West of Ireland Women’s Mini Marathon.
Statistics show that girls fall off in fitness levels once they start secondary school and Mayo Sports Partnership is working to change this by supporting girls to get more active. To achieve this, Mayo Sports Partnership in conjunction with Mayo.ie, Achill Outdoor Education Centre and Mayo Adventure Centre is providing all Secondary School girls over the age of 12 an opportunity to take part in the West of Ireland Women’s Mini Marathon, and taking up that challenge.
The 'It's For Girls' challenge is open to all secondary schools and interested schools must register with Mayo Sports Partnership before Friday April 21st. Expression of interest forms can be downloaded from www.mayosports.ie or contact Anne Ronayne, Mayo Sports Partnership on 094 9047025 or firstname.lastname@example.org
