Sarah Davis started the concept of Winning Women - women going out and doing their ‘firsts’ - when she came up with a dream she wanted to achieve. Sarah is going to paddle the Nile, a first for her and a first for women. Check out Sarah’s video above.
Sarah wants to use her experience to encourage women to go and do their own firsts and WIN – it’s not about winning in the competitive sense, it’s about having a personal win. These definitely don’t have to be world firsts, but something you’ve always wanted to do. Something with a strong reason for you. And with this build a community of fellow women encouraging, helping and inspiring each other.
Some ideas are:
• Enter a run, from a 5km fun run through to an ultra-marathon and everything in between
• Go and try a sport you’ve never done but always wanted to. Maybe you had a childhood dream to ride horses. Time to giddy up and go do it
• Maybe there’s somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit
• Climb Everest, walk the Camino de Santiago, bungee jump
What is something you’ve dreamt of doing? Don’t put it off another day, take action now. You’ll experience that incredible sense of achievement and fulfillment, push your own boundaries, get out of your comfort zone, create lasting memories, maybe let out your inner adventure junkie. And with it, share and inspire others. Oh, and have a heap of fun on the way. This is about LIVING our lives!
While you’re doing your first, how about helping women living in poverty, or refugees, who don’t have access to the kind of education and healthcare we are blessed to have?
Raise money for CARE Australia and you will do exactly that. This incredible charity is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to saving lives, ending poverty and achieving social justice. They put women and girls in the centre of all their initiatives because they know we can't overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.
It doesn’t matter how much you raise – whether it’s $10 or $10,000. Even if you don’t fundraise for your own first, donate to one of the other women here, or Sarah herself.
So, set your goal; your first. Set up your own fundraising page by clicking the JOIN US button above. Start telling everyone what you’re doing, take action and raise a heap of money for CARE. And share, share, share – Instagram, tweet and facebook the hell out of it #MyFirst #WinningWomen #PaddletheNile
This is going to be all time!
