RUN WALK WHEEL: MOVE
1. JOIN US FROM WHEREVER YOU ARE!
Throughout the month of June
Self-identified girls ages 8 – 14
MOVE YOUR WAY!
Join Fast and Female for our 3rd Run Walk Wheel. This year’s theme is MOVE — Move Your Way and have fun!
Help us reach our collective goal of 20,000 movement minutes tracked, in celebration of the 20,000+ self-identified girls our organization has served over the years.
What are “Movement Minutes” – the amount of time you spent having fun through physical activity. For example, dancing with your best friend for 15 minutes = 30 Movement Minutes collected in total (15 minutes each)
All participants will receive a downloadable bib, program e-mails and more, to encourage you to get moving!
Movement Minutes completed will only be counted through submissions through the official form; however, we encourage you to tag us in your photos on social media! Make sure to use the hashtags #FastAndFemale #RunWalkWheel and tag @FastAndFemale on all social platforms.
2. BUILD A TEAM TO HELP RAISE $20,000 TOWARDS OUR MISSION
1 in 3 girls leaves sport by late adolescence (Canadian Women and Sport, Rally Report, 2020). By comparison, the dropout rate for teenage boys the same age is only 1 in 10.
Fast and Female is on a mission to keep self-identified girls healthy and active in sports and physical activities!
Run Walk Wheel: MOVE is an ambitious physical activity challenge, aiming to collect 20,000 Movement Minutes across the nation. This goal is in recognition of the over 20,000 girls we’ve impacted through our events and programming over the years.
As the Fast and Female network gets moving across Canada, we’ve set an ambitious fundraising goal of $20,000 to support our mission.
Build your own fundraising teams or support a pre-existing team to help us reach $20,000 towards our mission!
3. JOIN US AT A POP UP EVENT!
Fast and Female is presenting pop-up Run Walk Wheel: MOVE events across the nation, hosted by our Youth Advisory Council members! We’re excited to have you join us in your city!
This year, our nationwide goal is to collect 20,000 Movement Minutes in celebration of the 20,000+ self-identified girls our organization has impacted.
Join us in your city, connect with local role models, and help us get towards 20,000 movement minutes tracked!

What are Movement Minutes?
Movement Minutes are the amount of time you spent having fun through physical activity. For example, dancing with your best friend for 15 minutes = 30 Movement Minutes collected in total (15 minutes each)
Do I have to participate every day of the event?
No. You do not have to run, walk, or wheel every day. As long as you complete your Movement Minutes and submit them through our official form before July 4th, you’ll be added to the team total.
How will it be tracked, where do I put in my time, and how will I see it?
This is a non-competitive event, so we’re not too worried about your time. It’s all about getting active, connecting as a community, and showing the self-identified girls, they GOT THIS! During June we’ll start tracking Movement Minutes as participants complete their activities (we’ll set up a place where you can share your final distance and rad day-of photos too). We’ll keep everyone updated on how we’re doing as a team and if we’ll hit our goal of 20,000 Movement Minutes!
Is this just for girls? Can other people in my life/family join me (dad, brother, bff, grandmother, etc.)
This event is for EVERYONE! Movement Minute submissions are open to individuals of all ages, ability levels, gender and geographic location. We’d love to see any and everyone get involved. If you’re a girl aged 8 -16, our online community and communications will be geared toward you, but participation is open to everyone. We’d love to see everyone in the community out supporting girls in sports!
Do I have to fundraise for this event?
Run Walk Wheel: MOVE is free and open to all participants and fundraising is not mandatory. If you are able to support Fast and Female programming, great! We suggest you either create a fundraising team or join a pre-existing virtual fundraising team to work collectively towards our fundraising goal of $20,000. You can do so by visiting this link.
Can I participate if I’m not in Canada?
YES! Anyone can participate by submitting your Movement Minutes before July 4th!
Do I have to have a social media account to follow this?
No. We will send informational emails to the account you use to submit your Movement Minutes.
