My name is Monkey and I love to volunteer. I may look like a dog, but I’m actually a “Monkey”.
I like to spend my Saturday mornings at Launceston parkrun. While I have completed many parkruns, about 20 to 30, I have also volunteered a lot in the last two years, as my mum Karen had an injury and couldn’t run. I have been a volunteer about 30 times and my favourite marshall spots at Launceston parkrun are the ‘bin monitor’ because there is lots of grass and shade and the ‘first dog park’ spot – there is a water trough there that I love to climb into!!
When I am not marshalling but just travelling around with mum and/or dad I always love to spend time in these two spots or the many water troughs around the area.
Besides volunteering, my other favourite thing to do at parkrun is to find the smallest stick or leaf possible and try and get people to throw it for me. And you know what? The majority of them do!
Thanks for playing with me, parkrun is the best!!! Both for me and my mum and I have loved every moment I have spent with my parkrun mates.
Thank you for loving and accepting me as part of the parkrun Pack xxx
