Due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation in Victoria, VicHealth has postponed This Girl Can Week 2020 until further notice. 

We will keep our community updated on when new dates have been confirmed. 


Monash Council and Active Monash is proud to be partnering with VicHealth for This Girl Can Week to encourage local women to get active – however, wherever and whenever they choose, without being judged.

This Girl Can Week (23-29 March 2020) aims to encourage more women to give physical activity a go, or return to exercise after a break. It’s a great opportunity to try something new, whether it’s a walk in the park, a gym session, a swim or a game of netball with friends.

Council received a $15,000 grant from VicHealth to promote the campaign to local women and host a series of events.
