Sponsor Jessica, Our Team RMHC Family Runner

Jessica Rogozinski

Jessica and her two children, Felix and Dottie, have been an RMHC Bay Area family for many years. They split their time between staying at their home in Fresno and at our Stanford House while Felix receives treatment at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. Jessica uses exercise, trail running, and time outside to help her cope with the stress of caring for a sick child and their younger sibling. We’re so excited to have Jessica running the Half Marathon at the Oakland Running Fest, and we hope you’ll join her on her journey. Support Jessica as she runs for a cause by sponsoring her efforts.
