April’s Girl Heroes

April’s Girl Heroes

Ty Whitten, Chet James and the Awesome Possum

Super Jock ‘n Jill Team!

This month’s Girl Heroes are Super Jock ‘n Jill’s General Store Manager Ty Whitten, Owner Chet James and the entire Super Jock ‘n Jill Team! Super Jock ‘n Jill has been a Girls on the Run supporter for years, marketing our 5K in their store front windows, hosting our race packet pickup at their Greenlake location, and supporting us in many other ways.

This year, with the help of Store Manager Ty Whitten, Super Jock ‘n Jill generously donated running shoes for GOTR program participants in need. Having proper footwear is essential in ensuring girls’ safety and success throughout the season and we are incredibly grateful to Jock ‘n Jill for this incredible gift to our program participants. But their generosity doesn’t end there! This season, Super Jock ‘n Jill will also host our SoleMates Team kickoff party. Our SoleMates Charity Running Team is comprised of athletes who pursue individual fitness goals, while raising funds to support the growth and sustainability of Girls on the Run. This season will be our largest SoleMates season yet and we could not be more excited to launch the start of training at Jock ‘n Jill!

Do you know of an awesome business in the area like Jock ‘n Jill that may be interested in sponsoring Girls on the Run? If so, we’d love to connect with them! Email becky@girlsrun.org to suggest a business, make a connection or learn more about our sponsorship packages.

Please join us in congratulating our April Girl Heroes, Super Jock ‘n Jill! Ty and other members of the Super Jock ‘n Jill team will be at the QFC Girls on the Run 5K this May. Be sure to stop by and thank them for supporting our girls and equipping them with the footwear necessary to cross the 5K finish line!
