Philly Girls in Motion

Philly Girls in Motion is a volunteer-driven organization that engages girls and their families in activities that encourage fitness and good nutrition. In turn, the organisation supports healthy body image, confidence, and good decision-making processes.

Philly Girls in Motion was founded by Beth Devine, a lifelong athlete who left a position in corporate America to get back to working with kids. Seeing the need to get girls active and moving while teaching them how to properly fuel their bodies, Devine got together with teachers, nutritionists, personal trainers, and fitness professionals to create Philly Girls in Motion. With support from the Philadelphia Recreation Department, Philly Girls in Motion runs after-school programs at three Independence Mission Schools, as well as community-based programs at two recreation centers and a multi-sport program at the Edward O’Malley Athletic Association (EOM) in South Philadelphia.
