The Vhi parkrun Hero award for the month of August has been awarded to Eimear Knight from Tullow, Co. Carlow.

 

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.

 

Eimear is a central member of the Tullow parkrun community, rarely missing a Saturday morning! Eimear is known for constantly encouraging friends, family and visitors to take part in the parkrun. A bad fall off a horse was not able to stop Eimear from taking part in parkrun, as she volunteered whilst on crutches!

 

Nominate a participant or volunteer for the September parkrun hero award at www.vhi.ie/running and if you are a Vhi customer you can also nominate a member of the parkrun community for the award within the Vhi app. Winners will receive a €250 One4All voucher and plaque courtesy of Vhi.
