Volunteer Profile

Don and Barb

Here is another lovely ‘couple’ volunteer team! Don has been a proud member of the Onehunga Amateur Athletic and Harrier Club since he was 15 years old, unfortunately the club nowadays is down to 10 members, although they would welcome more  runners young and old! Don was featured on tv a little while ago chatting about the club’s long history – see below:

I volunteer at parkrun because: It’s a volunteer run organisation, I feel it is my due to give my time back

 

One thing I love about parkrun is: Taking part in the five km run/walk, getting our times and enjoying the community feel of the event.

 

My most memorable parkrun moment was: Watching the amazing number of young kids running with their families.
