Do you know someone worthy of the Vhi parkrun Hero? Nominate them now!


Calling all parkrun Heroes! 


The Vhi parkrun Hero is a monthly award that recognises and rewards the hard-working and dedicated members within the parkrun community and the contribution they make. 


Every parkrun has its heroes. Those who have overcome personal, mental, or physical challenges, or always showing a willingness and dedication to help others. These incredible individuals make the parkrun community what it is. 


We all know someone worthy of being receiving the Vhi parkrun Hero award. We encourage you to nominate them and tell us how they contribute to your parkrun community. To nominate your Vhi parkrun Hero, answer a few simple questions here. If selected, the recipient will win a medal of recognition, a feature in our newsletter, and a €250 One4all voucher as a token of our appreciation. 


We look forward to hearing about your Vhi parkrun Hero, and to have the chance to give them the recognition they deserve!
