WHO: Preteen girls (4th – 6th grades) and their moms/primary female caregivers

WHERE: Plano Senior High School

Plano, TX 75075

WHY: It’s a tough world out there and our girls need all the “power” we can provide. In their formative years, preteen girls are susceptible to issues concerning internet safety, poor nutrition and low self-esteem. At this critical stage in girls’ lives, GiRL Power (Girls in Real Life) hopes to help strengthen the bond and dialogue between these girls and their mothers (or other important women in their lives) in order to build their confidence and improve their health.

CONTACT: Seating is limited. Tickets are $15 per adult/child couple and $20 for adults bringing more than one child. To register, call 1-877-THR-WELL or visit TexasHealth.org/GiRLPower.
