Why should others volunteer at parkrun?  It is lots of fun and you are part of the parkrun family.

Most memorable or funniest parkrun moment:  Christmas day 2016 when Bruce Fordyce attended the Potchefstroom parkrun. Everybody enjoyed the surprise.

What fellow volunteers say about them: Adri is always friendly, willing to volunteer and full of surprises sometimes. She's a reliable person. Her photos are always very good - some have a bit of "humor" in it and there is always a few nature ones as well. It's always a pleasure to volunteer with her.
