February Girl Hero

February Girl Hero

Our February Girl Hero is Enthusiastic and Articulate Youth Ambassador, Jovie Webbeking!

This month, we are excited to recognize Jovie Webbeking as our Girl Hero! Jovie is currently an eighth grader at Washington Middle School and will be participating in Heart & Sole, our middle-school program, for her second year in a row. She previously participated in Girls on the Run at Thurgood Marshall Elementary.


As a Girls on the Run Youth Ambassador, Jovie represents our organization through a variety of community engagement opportunities. She has shared her GOTR story for recruitment videos, assisted with raffle ticket sales and greeted guests at our Sneaker Soiree, and volunteered with her mom, Jennifer, at Seahawks training camp, selling yearbooks with proceeds benefiting Girls on the Run. Jovie is often the first Ambassador to volunteer for opportunities and is a passionate and articulate spokesperson for our program.


In her Youth Ambassador application, Jovie shared the following about her Girls on the Run experience: “Girls on the Run gave me a lot of confidence and I was able to complete a 5k! I learned that it is really important to set goals for yourself because it gives you confidence in what you are doing.  I also learned that it is important to have good self-esteem and how to not let other people hurt your feelings.  I think Girls on the Run is a great program and I really enjoyed participating in it!”


In addition to championing Girls on the Run in the community, Jovie also maintains a 4.0 GPA and plays ultimate Frisbee. Thank you, Jovie, for supporting Girls on the Run and being a terrific Ambassador for us!
