We get girls moving, teach them and their families about healthy nutrition, exercise and positive body image.
Philly Girls in Motion is a volunteer driven organization that engages girls and their families in activities that encourage fitness and good nutrition. In turn, the organization supports healthy body image, confidence and good decision making processes. Philly Girls in Motion was founded by Beth Devine, lifelong athlete who left a position in corporate America to get back to working with kids. Seeing the need to get girls active and moving while teaching them how to properly fuel their bodies, Devine got together with teachers, nutritionists, personal trainers, fitness professionals and created the program behind Philly Girls in Motion. With the support of the Philadelphia Recreation Department, Philly Girls in Motion runs after-school programs at three Independence Mission Schools, as well as community-based programs at two Rec Centers and a multi-sport program at the Edward O’Malley Athletic Association (EOM) in South Philadelphia.
