Wow, what a year it has been, and we couldn't have done it without YOU! From the successful completion of the second pilot of the Silver Gummy Removing Barriers for Self-Identified Girls in Sport Program, seeing all our friends in person at the Girls' Run in Canmore again, the Youth Advisory Council hosting events in their communities, heading to Vancouver for a day of empowerment with the Vancouver Whitecaps, solving clues with Athleta during the mall scavenger hunts, and everything in between, it's been a year to remember! 

Thank you to the Fast and Female community -- participants, REAL Role Models, partner organizations, parents/guardians/loved ones, donors, sponsors, supports and cheerleaders -- we can not continue to empower self-identified girls through sport and physical activities without each and every one of you. Each of you play a role on our team and we are so excited to see what 2023 has in store for us! 

Check out the impact we made in 2021 and read our blog post that summarizes 2022!

Happy Holidays and see you in the New Year!

We know that an existing barrier to allowing women to be physically active is childcare. So to ensure that all parents and guardians can participate in the Women’s Run and have their loved ones participate in the Girls’ Run without the fear of supervision or juggling schedules, we are launching an ADD-ON program following the Girls’ Run! This ADD-ON will include further connections with the REAL Role models and activities such as crafts and movement. So parents and guardians can go out and enjoy the run/walk, and we’ll be at the finish line cheering you on! Lunch is provided.


  • Saturday, May 27, 2023: Directly following the Girls' Run (9:30 am-12:30 pm) (25 tickets available) - $35 (Lunch included)
  • Sunday, May 28, 2023: Directly Following the Girls' Run (10:00 am - 12:30 pm) (25 tickets available) - $35 (Lunch included)

Spots are limited to 25 participants per day! Please note that you will be able to pick up your loved one anytime between the time blocks listed above. If you require this ADD-ON program day-of and have not purchased the ticket, the cost will be $35 on-site and based on available spaces.


Calling all self-identified girls aged 13-17! We are offering a new opportunity to learn and practice leadership skills by supporting the younger girls and getting mentored by the REAL Role Models! Join our youth network, meet new friends and gain new skills you will use for life! LITs will receive Fast and Female swag, and additional information about the Fast and Female Youth Network and Youth Advisory Council.

Fast and Female will sign for Community Involvement/Volunteer Hours as requested.

Cost: Free!
