On Sunday February 28th, I led my first GirlTrek walk as a neighborhood organizer & it was incredible!!!! 21 women ages ages 8-75 came together to support each other in completing a 3.34 mile walk from the Fit4Dance studio to Eastern Parkway & Franklin Avenue. I am extremely proud of everyone who came out but you know, this is just the start! If you missed it, don't worry, we'll be here each and every Sunday morning at 8:15am (rain or shine!). Check out the highlight video of our first trek below & keep reading to learn more about GirlTrek and how you can sign up!
I invite you to participate in the 2016 GirlTrek Season with Fit4Dance and celebrate our right for Love and Self-Care Now. Just show up we stretch and..we walk! It's FREE!!
Our goal, to walk from Utica Avenue/Eastern Parkway to Franklin Avenue/Eastern Parkway and back in 45-60 minutes. We will support one another along the way! No woman left behind!
We will meet at Fit4Dance Studio located at 154 Utica Avenue (between Prospect Park & St. Marks). Brooklyn, NY 11213 at 8:15am. We will leave on time, so we can finish and people can have their entire Sunday to do whatever they need to do, so please be on time....GirlTrek code is to be places 7 mins early!
