What is Mums Exercise Group Australia?

Mums Exercise Group Australia (MEGA) is a volunteer group, run by mums for mums, grand mums and mums-to-be to support them with their physical and mental health.

The group was founded by Jennelle McAppion two years ago when, after the birth of her triplet boys, she wanted to get fit and connect to the community. Initially there were ten members based in the ACT. Now, the group boasts 10,000 members nationally.

MEGA provides free and low cost exercise sessions and events across Australia. It also provides a Facebook forum to encourage and inspire each other through sharing health and fitness journeys.

Where does Mums Exercise Group Australia operate?

MEGA originally started in Canberra but now has sessions taking place all around Australia.

"Mums Exercise Group Australia aims to motivate and inspire mums nationally to get fit and socially connected to their community."
— Jennelle McAppion, Founder of MEGA

How would Mums Exercise Group Australia use a Dreams for a Better World grant?

MEGA’s dream would be to build an online platform for mothers to be able to tap into an online health and fitness app where they can access free recipes and exercise tips.
