The programme has been amazing in so many ways. Seeing the camaraderie, team spirit and passion amongst the girls has been heart-warming. Many of the girls who took part in the programme were not taking part in any extra-curricular activity and were missing out on opportunities to improve their health and fitness. Being part of the Mini Mermaids programme enabled them to become physically confident in a way that has supported their physical and emotional well being.
The 5K Challenge has enabled all the girls to experience accomplishment and success, the run was physically demanding and all the girls excelled.
The programme and the 5K run was character building :The girls are now more confident in the way they move, the way see themselves and their willingness to take part in physical activity.
The girls have become ambassadors for health and fitness and have been encouraging family members to be more physically active. They are not only confident and competent but they are intending to continue with their fitness journey due to the inspiration they found during the Mini Mermaid programme.
We cannot thank you enough for providing us the opportunity to take part in this life altering programme!
