Live Well Omaha Kids is excited to lift up a national campaign from our friends at the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. #GirlsAre empowers girls and women to move more and praise each other’s athleticism.

Girls today are far less likely than boys to achieve recommended amounts of physical activity. Now is the time to change this!

Live Well Omaha Kids knows that #GirlsAre Bold. You can help encourage the girls in your life to be active – whatever that looks like  – whether it’s organizing a neighborhood walk, learning new dance moves in the living room, playing soccer at the park, or joining a sports team at the local YMCA.

Take action! Join the campaign and share your own empowering message here.

Share your photos of being active online using #GirlsAre and #LiveWellOmahaKids. Check out these awesome photos of Live Well Omaha staff and Board Chair celebrating their strength.
