About Mini Gutsy Girl

Formerly “Gutsy Girl” (full size!)

You’ve seen her life-size figure running around Berks, but lately she’s been prepping for her anticipated travels around the country! Gutsy Girl has downsized to get portable-ready for traveling…quite literally. Meet Mini-Gutsy, our tabletop mini version of Gutsy Girl On The Go, created by the talented Ann Chase and Sharon McGinley of Googleworks Center For the Arts!


Mini-Gutsy loves to travel, take in the sights both in Berks and abroad, expand her wellness education, and spread the word about our annual festival, Guts and Glory Wellness Expo! She can’t wait to meet you and absolutely loves selfies and live video shots! One never knows where she’ll pop up next, so keep your eyes out for her around town. You will definitely see her at My Gut Instinct sponsor locations and Guts & Glory vendor businesses so she can shout out to our wonderful supporters, but don’t be surprised if you catch her at local community events too!

Mini-Gutsy wants to see & be seen and is thrilled to make an album of selfies with new friends like you, and if you post your pictures and like us on Facebook, you can win prizes from My Gut Instinct too!    So please don’t be shy, because she isn’t! Email My Gut Instinct if you’d like to host her at your business or next event, and quite honestly…she might just show up anyway!

Gutsy Girl On The Go (the original Gutsy!)

You may have seen her at different places around town; she brings smiles to those that pass her. You may have heard about her; she is a leading advocate for living better. You may have gotten the chance to snap a photo with her; she’s always ready to make a fan happy. She’s Gutsy Girl On the Go…and the question is, how haven’t you met her yet?


Gutsy Girl is our de facto mascot, representing our non-profit organization My Gut Instinct, and serving as a beacon of good health. She promotes community awareness of health and wellness through preventative health care and holistic well-being every day & everywhere she goes. She is also running around town to spread the word about Guts & Glory 2016, our community-wide free annual health & wellness fair being held at the First Energy Stadium on October 8, 2016!

We want you to meet her! We can’t wait for you to meet her! When you see her around town, make sure to grab a selfie with her and hashtag it at #gutsygirl to be entered to win prizes throughout the year!
