We are seeking pledges from the Crowd so that we can empower more girls in the city to be active. The Crowd's support will help us to engage with girls and young women to encourage them to take part in activites that will enhance their general health and wellbeing.

The Active Girls Committee has the aim of getting more girls in Aberdeen active and enjoying the many benefits of taking part in sport and activities. We are made made up of girls from across secondary schools in the city and are supported by Sport Aberdeen’s Active Schools Team.

We will do this through organising a series of events for girls and we need the help of the crowd to fund these. Our vision includes;-

Girls Big Day Out Taster Event
