Jenny Totcky

Director of Operations & Marketing

Background and Runway to Hope History

Jenny moved to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida 8 years ago, where she graduated with a degree in Musical Theatre. While attending UCF, she held many jobs; one of which was as the Directors' Assistant and Vendor Manager for several Runway to Hope events, starting in 2016. Upon graduating college, Jenny took a principal position as a singer on the Norwegian Joy with Norwegian Cruise lines traveling Japan and China for six months. When Jenny returned, she fell right back into Vendor and Event Management for RTH until she was asked to stay on full-time as Director of Operations in 2019. Since then, she has been honored to work for Runway to Hope's families every day, serving them to the best of her ability. Additionally, Jenny handles all organization operations and recently added "marketing" to her title as she learned basic graphic design, social media strategy, and web design.

Meet our Founders

What started out as a simple dream has blossomed into a beautiful reality. Twelve years ago, we envisioned a way of providing direct support to children and families who have been affected by pediatric cancer in our local community. Words cannot begin to elaborate on the amount of respect, gratitude, and sincere appreciation we have for each and every one of you. As we come together, united in our mission, we hope for nothing more than to all hold hands, to walk together, and to find a cure for childhood cancer.
