We are thrilled to officially launch the Girls in Sport campaign with the goal of making people more aware of why girls need to be inspired, influenced, and encouraged to get involved and stay involved in sport. Playing sports, whether recreational or elite, has been proven to directly impact success in school, career, and quality of life. This digital campaign features a series of short videos tied to the Girls in Sport theme. Click below to view our latest video “Why Be A Girl Athlete”.
We are asking all Canadians to tell us who your role model is and why by leaving comments below each video on our social media platforms or by clicking here. Five of the top role models named will be featured in the Women in Sport gallery set to open in 2019 at Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame. To be eligible, your role model must be:
- Canadian (inclusive of multi-cultural and Indigenous ancestries)
- Athlete (currently competing or retired)
On June 14, 2018, we will host our 2nd annual #InspireCanada Gala. Proceeds from this event will help to support the next phase of the Girls in Sport campaign aimed at reaching and inspiring even more girls by connecting them to their role models across the country as well as creating the new Women in Sport gallery.
