On Saturday, April 14, over 1,000 girls were jumping across the nation! SWSG’s signature annual celebration brought together all SWSG girls and mentors, along with hundreds of volunteers, parents, and community partners. In all three SWSG cities, girls enjoyed a joyous day of dance, music, special performances, and, of course, jumping rope! Check out our Facebook page for photos and videos of the day in Boston, Pittsburgh, and South Florida.
