Nominate your Vhi parkrun Hero for February

Angela 5

Vhi and parkrun are accepting nominations for the February Vhi parkrun Hero award!


Last month’s winner, Angela Behan picked up her €250 One4All voucher and special plaque at Carlow parkrun, presented by event director Lisa Kennedy. Angela is a regular parkrun participant and volunteer and was described as living proof of why you should never give up. Congratulations, Angela.


The Vhi parkrun Hero monthly award looks to recognise and reward inspirational, hardworking and dedicated members of the parkrun community who embody the ethos of parkrun or have made an outstanding contribution – be they participants or volunteers.


If you think someone from your local parkrun deserves to be celebrated as a Vhi parkrun Hero, please nominate them by telling us a little bit about their parkrun story using the online application form. One winner is picked each month and receives a €250 One4All voucher and plaque.
