Volunteer Profile

Pegasus - Bidgie

 


Bidgie Jefferies has been and continues to be a staunch supporter and great volunteer at Pegasus, as she says her spinal injury prevents her from participating but her love of running keeps her motivated, keen and totally supportive. Bidgie is, in her own right, one of the great characters we have at Pegasus.

- Geoff McMillan, Event Director

 

Name: Bidgie (Elizabeth) Jefferies

Age: 64

Home parkrun: Pegasus

 

Occupation: Retired

 

Number of Runs: Only volunteered

 

Number of times volunteered: 32

 

Favourite volunteer role: Barcodes, but happy to do whatever’s needed.

 

I volunteer at parkrun because: It’s pay back time, after many years of competing in multisport and running events.  I am now unable to run due to a spinal problem and love to see parkrun come to Pegasus, where we now live.

 

 

One thing I love about parkrun is: watching others be active and achieve or work towards achieving their goals , whether they be course record, PB or just walking the 5 kms. I know from my own experiences, it’s a great feeling to participate and set your goals and I miss my running.

 

 

 

My most memorable parkrun moment was: My most Memorable parkrun is watching my visiting grandchildren ( Willem 10 years and Mathias 8 years ) participating along with their mother and grandfather .  Shannon also pushed the four year old in the buggy whilst running. Three generations shows it’s achievable for all levels.
