The Vhi parkrun Hero award for the month of February has been awarded to Aoife Kelly from St. Anne’s parkrun in 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.

 

Aoife is a true hero of the St Anne’s parkrun community. She recently completed over 100 parkruns. Whilst Aoife was receiving chemotherapy, she made the effort to attend the St Anne’s parkrun and volunteer. Even on cold Sunday mornings, Aoife is always there cheering on all the children who take part in the junior parkrun. Well done Aoife!
