Meet CCBF Marathon Runner Jess Osborne

 

The 2015 New York City Marathon is fast approaching and the Children’s Cancer & Blood Foundation has several superstar runners representing our organization this year. Jessica Osborne, a Wilhelmina fitness model, actress, and a fitness trainer, is one of the many. Jess decided to join Team CCBF to advocate new cures and treatments for children’s cancer and blood diseases this year.

Jessica moved to New York City to pursue a career in dance and acting after studying Jazz Dance Performance at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She performed as a Radio City Rockette for 7 years and is currently in the show Fuerza Bruta. Aside from acting and dancing, Jessica is also a certified yoga, Pilates, TRX and stand up paddle instructor. She works at FLEX studios in NYC and at Paddle Diva in East Hampton, New York.

Even in the midst of her busy schedule; filming and teaching fitness, she has already hosted few exceptional fundraisers for CCBF these past weeks. Using her special ability to teach groups, she held a fitness class where all of the proceeds went to benefit the organization.  Additionally, Jessica hosted a happy hour fundraiser to raise awareness and funds for all of the care of the children living with cancer or blood diseases.
