The Vhi parkrun Hero award for the month of May has been awarded to Jason Le Masurier from Buncrana parkrun in Donegal.

 

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 – whether they be participants or volunteers.

 

Jason is a key member of the parkrun community in Buncrana. 13 years ago, Jason was involved in a kite surfing accident and his chances of survival were slim. Through great determination and drive and constant support from his wife Liz, Jason overcame all the odds, and has now completed numerous marathons and is an inspiring event director at Buncrana parkrun. Well done Jason!
