Tralee parkrunner named Vhi parkrun Hero

SHEEHY Pat-04

The Vhi parkrun Hero award for the month of November has been awarded to Pat Sheehy from Tralee parkrun, Co. Dublin.

 

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.

 

Pat is a core member of the Tralee parkrun team and was there from the beginning. Despite his huge commitment to the GAA (he is a referee and Referee Assessor) and his local athletics club (St. Brendan’s), he is ever present at both Tralee parkrun and junior parkruns and has volunteered an amazing 250+ times in every possible role. He has even invented a few jobs of his own, such as clearing the path of snow at 6am using car headlights during the ‘Beast from the East’. He has also volunteered at Inch Beach, Listowel and Mungret parkrun. Pat truly embodies the parkrun ethos, which is exemplified by his connection to his community.

 

If you think someone from your local parkrun deserves to be celebrated as a Vhi parkrun Hero nominate them at www.vhi.ie/running. Winners will be announced monthly and will receive a €250 One4All voucher and plaque courtesy of Vhi.
