When Beth Devine quit her job to focus on fitness full time, she knew things were getting serious.
Devine, founder of the organization Philly Girls in Motion, has been a coach and athlete for many years. Now she has the opportunity to share her passion for athletics with a new generation of girls.
Philly Girls in Motion started in 2010 with the assistance of Councilman-at-Large Jim Kenney, who advised Devine to start the nonprofit and seek the support of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
