Dear PGIM Friends & Family-

It is hard to believe that we are heading into month 8 of this new "normal". I hope that all of your families are staying safe and doing well. I wanted to provide an update on the work we have been doing to continue to provide opportunities for our girls and maintain a sense of community during this challenging time.


The goal of Philly Girls in Motion (PGIM) is to provide high quality sports and fitness opportunities and create girl-centric, safe spaces that address the needs of the girls we serve. The pandemic challenged us to meet these needs without the ability for in-person sessions. Our coaches immediately hit the ground running to develop virtual content participants could access from home and complete alone or in small groups. Every week, we post a new fitness routine and sports skills lesson for our girls to continue to develop their skills. We established an equipment borrowing program for girls to access what they needed to participate. We are proud to say our very own PGIM alumnae stepped up to help our community by creating their very own training videos that were shared with current participants. Feel free to check out our Virtual Class Library and get a work out in with one of our instructors!

As our supporters know, girls in Philadelphia, especially from under-resourced neighborhoods, have fewer opportunities, less resources, and face more challenges to participate in sport and fitness activities than their male counterparts. This pandemic will exasperate this inequality, making our work at PGIM all the more important. Looking to the future we are hoping to return to some normalcy with our regularly scheduled programs, but we know that girls will need additional support as we emerge from this pandemic. PGIM is prepared to be a leader in working through the trauma of COVID-19 together. We have continued to work with our partners at the School District, Parks and Recreation, sports-based youth development organizations, and mental health professionals to develop tools and resources for teachers, coaches, and instructors that will help them to better understand the impact of trauma on young people. 

We are committed to continuing the fight for equity for our girls and are excited to get back out there whenever it is safe to do so. If you are interested in getting involved in this important work, please reach out to us via email. As always, thank you for your continued support. We will need you more than ever as we continue this essential work.

Stay safe and I hope to see you all soon,

Jillian & the PGIM Team
