Girls Scouts promotes health, fitness and leadership and through a partnership with Nestle they created the GirlSports Challenge to see the girls in action. The GirlSports Challenge is showcasing girls who know the importance of staying healthy through physical activity.
GirlSports asked girls, ages 13 and older, to upload a picture of themselves onto the Girl Scouts Facebook page showing the participant actively playing a sport. "After all, the benefits of exercising and playing sports are endless," as said on the GirlSports website.
