ACTIVITIES ENCOURAGE WOMEN & GIRLS TO GET ACTIVE ON MORNINGTON ISLAND
Womensport Queensland and the Department of Sport of Recreation recently held an Active Women and Girls Morning Tea and physical activity sessions on Mornington Island. The sessions were held in Basketball, Softball and Touch Football for 6-15 year olds in the hope the girls in attendance would be encouraged to engage in regular physical activity.
The girls were also told inspirational stories by current and former Olympians.
The speakers on the day were softballer Sandra Lewis who will head to Beijing for her second Olympic appearance after winning a bronze medal in Athens, Raelene Boulton a former Olympic handballer and regional touch football player and Kim Cooper who was also a member of the bronze medal winning softball team in Athens in 2004.
The event was a part of the Active Women and Girls Morning Tea Series being held around Queensland.
