Verona has been described as someone who epitomises all that is parkrun. Verona is a core member of the Westport parkrun community, having helped in setting up the Westport event. Verona rarely misses a Saturday morning, having completed 210 events and volunteered 58 times! Verona recently organised a parkrun trip for members of Leamington parkrun, and a return visit for the group at Westport to Leamington in the UK. Verona has a can-do attitude and consistently welcomes and encourages first-time runners to keep coming back.
