Volunteer Profile

NeilSandra

A very valued member of the Invercargill parkrun team Sandra and her husband Neil make rather a special team, thank you both so much for your valuable help and enthusiasm for parkrun!

 

Name: Sandra Brownridge

Age: 60

Home parkrun: Invercargill

 

Occupation: Retired due to Sickness

Number of Runs: 5

Number of times volunteered: will be tail wheeling next week subject to the weather!

 

I volunteer at parkrun because: In July 2017 I was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease. I complete parkrun in a wheelchair powered by my husband Neil. I enjoy the weekly run and love to chat with the volunteers as we go around the course even taking a photo of the photographer who was taking our photo!

 

One thing I love about parkrun is: Getting out and about in the fresh air in the company of friendly like minded people and the hot chocolate afterwards.

 

My most memorable parkrun moment was: We have a best time of 47. 56 and get along at a reasonable clip although I do encourage Neil to go faster. Neil has even had to reverse over the line so he could beat me so as you can see there’s a little fun in there too, but I think to be described as cute one day takes the cake!!
