Kingston University is backing Sport England's This Girl Can campaign and offering a full week of FREE activities to encourage more women to engage in physical activity. Research revealed that two million fewer women than men play sport or work out on a regular basis and it is our mission to close this gap and make activities more accessible and appealing to the girls.
Taking the lead from BUCS - British Universities and College Sport #ThisBUCSGirlCan; this week we are joining them in offering a week of FREE activities for our own 'This KU Girl Can' focus week to support and motivate all student, staff and community members in the Kingston area - #ThisKUGirlCan.
