Nominate your parkrun community hero

LBS 0408

At Leeds Building Society, we’re proud to be partners of parkrun UK; working together to help build and strengthen local communities. We would love to hear about all the amazing people who ensure parkrun brings real benefit to communities up and down the country.

 

We’ve launched our Community Heroes programme to put a spotlight on the brilliant people who have used the power of parkrun to bring real benefit to the lives of others. From those who passionately encourage people from all backgrounds to try parkrun for the first time, to those who’ve encouraged fellow parkrunners to help support local causes and initiatives, we want to put a spotlight on the Community Heroes of parkrun. We’ll be celebrating these Heroes to give them some well-deserved recognition, and hopefully inspire others to follow in their footsteps!

 

So if you think someone from your parkrun deserves to be celebrated as a Community Hero please tell us a little bit about them at https://www.leedsbuildingsociety.co.uk/communityheroes – we’ll follow up on stories of interest to find a bit more about them to help us select our Community Heroes.

 

Thanks for your support!
