Girls Active Award winners featured on The Female Lead
The 2018 Girls Active Award winners have been featured on The Female Lead blog.
The Female Lead is a campaign to showcase inspirational female role models across the world.
The girls talked to the website about what inspired them to get involved with Girls Active and what they want to achieve.
Girls Active is developed by the Youth Sport Trust, delivered in partnership with Women in Sport and This Girl Can and funded through Sport England National Lottery. It celebrates involving girls in the design of PE and physical activity in primary and secondary schools.
Jenny Davis ends #SoloToTheSouthPole challenge after illness
Adventurer Jenny Davis had to end her world-record attempt to ski solo to the South Pole after falling ill.
Jenny was fundraising for Women in Sport and Children in Need.
Last week, she was medevac'd from Antarctica to Chile for medical treatment and was diagnosed with a bowel infection and peritonism, an inflammation of the inner lining of the abdomen.
Jenny is now recovering but is already planning a return to the Antarctic.
We thank her for taking on this challenge in aid of our work.
