Celebrate International Women’s Day at PARC

#BreakTheBias with us at PARC! 

Join us as we celebrate women’s achievement and raise awareness against bias on Tuesday 8 March.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day focuses on accelerating gender parity and is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action. International Women’s Day has been occurring for well over a century – and continues to grow from strength to strength.

Come to PARC for FREE

At PARC we are surrounded by an amazing community of women, and men, and want to invite the community down to the facility for FREE from 8am – 3pm on Tuesday 8 March. We want to #breakthebias and break down the financial barrier of being active and enjoying recreation and time for yourself, so please come one, come all! PARC is an inclusive space to feel safe, and focus on your health and wellbeing.

Join our #BreakTheBias Workouts

We are also holding a series of #BreakTheBias Workouts, to demonstrate that being strong is for everyone. So often we see women reluctant to go into the gym and give it a go, thinking that weights and strength are ‘for men’. But let’s break this stereotype and show our community that being strong and looking after yourself is for everyone. We are offering free community events, including:

  • #BreakTheBias Strength 7.15-8.00am at PARC Health Club Outrace (BOOK FOR FREE HERE)
  • #BreakTheBias Strength 10.00-10.45am at PARC Health Club Outrace (BOOK FOR FREE HERE). Special note – This session will be led by our recently awarded Aquatics & Recreation Victoria Personal Trainer of the Year Pru Drago!
  • Join us for a quick grab and go breakfast from 8am – 10am on your way in or out of the Health Club.
  • #BreakTheBias Me Time 7pm from the comfort of your home via www.parcyourway.com.au. Yoga, Meditation and Stretch Flow to see your day out. Join LIVE and FREE via www.parcyourway.com.au/categories/live-class (no bookings required, you will just need to create a free account to log in).

Did you know that our vision is that 'Every Child In Frankston Can Swim'?🌳👶🏻

The Rotary Peninsula 2.0's Birth Tree is one way that's helping us to achieve this vision. ⚙️

By joining the Birth Tree, you get your child's name on this year's plaque. Plus through the Birth Tree, $45 of every contribution goes straight back to PARC and PINES to help more children build confidence in the water. Your contribution will go directly to funding baby swim programs. It's a great gift to welcome a child into our ever-growing community in Frankston.🏊

You can purchase a place for a baby born this year on the birth tree by heading to our website in the link below. Or for older children, you can add them to the Family Garden. Find out more in the link in our bio.
