As the Event Director of a new parkrun event, I’d like to express my gratitude to the most amazing team of volunteers at Frédéric-Back. They are the most committed and reliable people. They are at the park every Saturday morning, come rain or come shine with smiles and awesome spirits.
Many of our volunteers come from the other side of the city. They have been willing to try different roles so that everyone is very versatile. Thanks to them, I don’t ever worry about not having enough volunteers for the coming event. I really enjoy starting my weekends with them. They each bring something very unique to the team and it wouldn’t be the same without them.

We will hopefully have other volunteers joining our team, but you are, and will forever be, the dream team that was there from the very beginning, the core, the more experienced, those that were there from the launch and that will have seen Frédéric-Back parkrun grow strong.
Thank you Tracy, Jimena, Karen, Kelly, Marvin and Joon. You guys make my role so much easier. You are the best!
