Fat Girls Hiking, SW Ohio: Sugarcreek Metropark
December 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Fat Girls Hiking is fat activism, body liberation & outdoor community. We want to take the shame & stigma out of the word FAT & empower it. Our motto, Trails Not Scales focuses on Self Care in the outdoors. We promote weight-neutrality & Health At Every Size. We want all people to feel comfortable outdoors & be able to access the outdoors in a way that meets their needs & to be able to claim their space on the trail. We believe that folks of all ages, sizes, shapes, races, religions, classes, abilities, genders and sexual identities should be represented & celebrated in the outdoors. Our community is for everyone! We encourage & support folks who want to get out & hike, to do so!
This hike will be led by our amazing Fat Girls Hiking: SW Ohio ambassadors, Lindsay & Sara! Check out their ambassador profiles on the website: https://fatgirlshiking.com/sw-ohio/ & feel free to email them with any questions: [email protected]
This hike goes through a wooded area and over a stream. We will get to see the Osage Orange Tunnel and the Three Sisters, which are 550-year old trees.
Just want to give anyone attending this hike our group hike guidelines that make Fat Girls Hiking the body positive & inclusive community that it is!
We don’t allow any weight loss talk, diet talk or body shaming on our hikes.
Kids of all ages are welcome (unless noted.) Dogs are allowed (unless noted.)
We are inclusive to all genders, all sizes & abilities. We go at the pace of the slowest hiker (usually that’s me!) We are inclusive to queer folks, transgender folks, gender non-confirming folks, feminists, fat folks, people of color & all marginalized people.
