Chicks Play Hard: volunteers needed

It's that time of year again, time for Chicks Play Hard. I would appreciate if you would share on the Neighborhood blog that we're gearing up for the big day, Saturday, Oct. 25, from 11 AM to 4 PM at Miller Community Center. We are looking for women volunteers, high school age young women who would like to volunteer (and earn community service credit) and participants - girls ages 9 to 13.

Register and learn more at:

As additional background, Chicks Play Hard is a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization that strives to build self-confidence in girls by providing them with a nurturing environment to try different activities and develop self expression. Girls ages 9 to 13 participate in workshops led by high school students who are, in turn, mentored by women experts. The event encourages the girls to try new and diverse things, learn from positive female role models and-most importantly- have fun.

New activities this year include rock climbing, fire fighter, skateboarding and yoga. Returning favorites include writing, double dutch jump rope and songwriting.

Chicks Play Hard is in its 7th year, and we look forward to sharing this FREE event with the community this year and for years to come.
