WE HAVE A NEW DIRECTOR!
It’s time for some good news, so here it is! Team Totally Runable are super excited to announce that we have a new Director joining the team, and it is none other than international superstar athlete, Olympian, World and European medallist, and all round awesome human being Jenny Meadows.
Jenny joins the team from her base in the North West of England in a new role raising the profile of Totally Runable across the country, and furthering the work we have done both in schools, and on the campaign trail with #SeeSportyBeSporty.
Her Totally Runable diary is already filling up with (now virtual!) meetings and (now largely postponed to the Autumn or virtual!) speaking engagements to talk about her journey as an athlete and the work she is doing with Totally Runable, and we are over the moon to have her on board.
Fellow Director, and Totally Runable Co-Founder Emily Freeman said, “We are so excited to have Jen in the team. This is the culmination of years of mutual appreciation for the work both she and we have been doing. I have known Jen a very long time, since we were both athletes travelling internationally together, and she has met the rest of Team TR several times. She will fit right in, without doubt shares our mission to close the Gender Sport Gap in schools, and I can’t wait to see what we can all accomplish together.”
Jenny is just as excited to join the team as we are to have her, “I’ve been following the fantastic work that Totally Runable have been doing and have wanted to get involved however I could. I’ve seen first-hand that the team are experts in understanding the Gender Sport Gap and have developed workshops and courses that address this issue, creating positive change. I know my own knowledge, experience and skills will contribute towards raising the profile of such a fabulous organisation, achieving even more positive change. I’m raring to go and keen to do all I can to promote and expand the work that is already going on. Especially in times such as these where community and positive social change are so vitally important.”
Jenny is ready and waiting to hear from you on her new Team TR email address, which is Jen@totallyrunable.com. Welcome to the team Jen!
