Girls on the Run

Jo Sylvester
A Boston native, Jo moved to Bend recently after living in Sydney, Australia and San Francisco, California. For five years, Jo worked for Girls on the Run of the Bay Area as the Event & Outreach Director where she was responsible for planning and executing all major fundraising events. During her time with GOTR, Jo played a critical role in the rapid growth of the program, event participation and sponsorship revenue. It was at GOTR that Jo discovered her passion and talent for event planning. Jo loves to bring a strong vision and fun approach to each event she organizes and looks forward to contributing to the growth and success of Girls on the Run here in Bend.
Jo continues to work in the event/running industry as the Assistant Race Director for Cascade Relays, a running relay event company that has a long history of supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Bend. No surprise, running is a big part of Jo's life. She started running in high school and hasn't stopped yet. On the side, Jo is a certified endurance running coach and trains individuals for half and full marathons. Jo's better half, Tim, keeps her grounded and two-year old son, Hunter, reminds her that life is way more fun when you’re laughing.
