The Girls Inspired, Girls Empowered (GiGe) program at Bridge II Sports aims to create a safe, fun space for girls with disabilities, and the important women in their lives, to meet one another and grow together.
Girls with disabilities face added difficulties to the already challenging task of ‘growing up a girl’. From maintaining differing body needs, to stares of misunderstanding from others, to the harsh reality of inaccessibility, girls with disabilities ‘stick out’ during a time when they want to ‘fit in’.
GiGe fills that space of difficulty with community, advocacy, INSPIRATION and EMPOWERMENT.
For the first of 3 sessions in 2022, it’s all about ‘spreading your wings’ and expressing yourself through creativity.
We will have some ‘meet and greet’ fun, hear from a published author from the BIIS family, move with accessible dance, create art, and begin to explore who we are as women and girls with disabilities.
Saturday February 19 · 10am to 3pm
