Kenneth Coakley from Poppintree parkrun, Dublin, has been named as the October Vhi parkrun Hero.

 

The monthly award recognises and rewards inspirational, hardworking and dedicated members of the parkrun community who embody the ethos of parkrun or have made an outstanding contribution – be they participants or volunteers.

 

Since 2014, Kenneth has been deeply connected with Poppintree parkrun and has become an influential person for people in his local community. Kenneth has also been involved in Mountjoy Prison Progression Unit parkrun since its inaugural week. Continuously going above and beyond to encourage others to get out and keep fit, Kenneth is known for supporting all parkrun participants every Saturday morning and has even assisted some of the marathon runners with their training.

 

If you know a parkrun participant or volunteer who could be the next Vhi parkrun Hero, head over to www.vhi.ie/running to nominate them today. One winner is chosen each month and is awarded with a €250 One4All voucher and a special plaque.
