Pink Reign Campaign
The MSCD’s Pink Reign Campaign seeks to facilitate the development of women and girls by providing opportunities to increase awareness and participation in the key aspects of sport and physical activity.
This campaign will be executed using a comprehensive, four-pronged approach examining all areas of sport. This includes:
- Monthly panel discussions with topics ranging from the need for a cultural shift as it relates to women in sports, to sport entrepreneurship, diet and exercise
- Social media stories highlighting and celebrating women in sport
- Virtual training clinics and workshops
- Virtual races -“GirlsRunTT” Challenge
The #GirlsRunTT Challenge kicks off the MSCD’s Pink Reign Campaign and issues a call to all women and girls across Trinidad and Tobago to join the campaign to get physically active and participate in sports. Launched in recognition of International Women’s Day 2021, the MSCD will enroll and sponsor 120 women and girls to participate in a number of virtual road races covering 70 miles between the months of March and August 2021.
The MSCD is working with BafaSports Limited on this initiative which takes its pattern from the BafaSports’ Magnificent 70 mile Challenge. This Challenge takes participants on a virtual journey celebrating the seven historic buildings located around the Queen’s Park Savannah in Trinidad and Tobago. The virtual race is intended to challenge women of various fitness levels to participate in 5k, 10k, half marathon and other races to improve their physical health and inspire other women to keep moving as we grapple to overcome the current pandemic. The Ministry is also promoting this initiative to pay tribute to the late ‘Granny’ Luces, one of T&T’s most beloved road runners.
Interested participants can register from 9 – 16 March, 2021 at 4:00pm by clicking here . Applicants will also be asked to state in 25 words or less what they #choosetochallenge in recognition of International Women’s Day 2021. The MSCD will announce selected participants by 30th March, 2021 via its social media pages.
