This Girl Can Nordic Walk

Laura is a Nordic Walking instructor based in Brockley. She writes:

I am honoured to have been chosen from amongst 54 applicants to become a partner of London Sport This Girl Can campaign to support Sport England's campaign This Girl Can.

Since starting out in November 2011 I have taught over 250 Lewisham residents - men & women - to Nordic Walk in Ladywell Fields and Hilly Fields. 85% of my walkers are women – the youngest participant is 19 and the oldest 85.

I think my Nordic Walking ladies capture the spirit of This Girl Can so perfectly - these ladies don’t care how they look, if their bits wobble, if they get sweaty & red faced; they just love coming together for a brisk Nordic Walk!

This Sunday, for Mother’s Day, I will be doing a free Nordic Walking taster session at Hilly Fields at 3-4pm specifically aimed at Mothers and Daughters. I am hoping to get more 18+ girls and women active together.
