GoGirlGo! Gets Baton Rouge Girls Moving

This summer, over three hundred girls in Baton Rouge experienced the benefits of physical activity through GoGirlGo! The girls were able to “Geaux,” Louisiana-style, thanks to the generous support of the Irene W. and C.B. Pennington Foundation.

Participants in the Boys and Girls Club and Big Buddy programs experienced a wide range of new physical activities and non-competitive games. In addition, they became the first group of girls to utilize the new GoGirlGo! curriculum. Based on the success of the Baton Rouge program, the award-winning educational materials will soon be made available for girls as young as five years old nationwide.
