June's Girl Hero

Jessica Janner Castro

We are thrilled to honor Jessica Janner Castro as our June Girl Hero! Jessica is a News Anchor at KING5 and has been our 5K emcee for the last three years. We don’t know what we’d do without her! When Jessica first moved to Seattle, she reached out to us after having volunteered and coached for two other councils, Girls on the Run Bay Area and Girls on the Run Las Vegas. When we asked her why she loves Girls on the Run and continues to give back, even as she moves around the country, Jessica said “I really believe in the work GOTR does to improve self-esteem and empower young girls. Setting and accomplishing goals (like running a 5k) is a necessary life skill. Every year I am extremely proud of all the young participants who cross the finish line.” Thank you, Jessica!
