Friday, March 8—KILLINGTON— Join SheJumps as we celebrate Get the Girls Out!, a nationwide campaign uniting women and girls—transgender and cisgender—as well as non-binary individuals to embrace the great outdoors while fostering a sense of adventure and camaraderie. Spurred by International Women’s Day, this program is a call to action for participants of all ages to connect with nature, break down barriers, and celebrate their achievements and strengths throughout the month of March.
