Funded by the Australian Sports Commission's Move It AUS Participation Grant Program, Walang Yinhaa (strong women) aims to encourage and empower Aboriginal women and girls living in rural and remote communities in NSW to ‘Find Their 30’ minutes of daily exercise.
“I’m a 39-year-old Wiradjuri woman and I believe it’s important to continue to #FindMy30 so that I am staying active and keep moving. I really enjoyed the program and I hope that other women can benefit from it as well.”
“I’m 49 years old, raised in Gulargambone but with a family heritage traced to Blakney Creek where my great grandfather, John Bell was born. Since beginning the program, I have lost 14kg which I’ve been able to maintain. This weight loss has put me back into a healthier weight range and with my doctor’s approval, I have been able to transition off my anti-depressants and my blood pressure medication.
I continue to #FindMy30 by swimming laps or walking and using public equipment. It’s really important to me to maintain my health lifestyle. This program has allowed me to change my life for the better.”
“I’m a 42-year-old single mother of two, I was born in Wellington but I moved to Dubbo when I was eight. I’m trying to be a morning person – trying! I’m going to be one of those people soon. All you have to do is start!”
