Hanita Ahmad – A Happy Teacher


Hanita is a very busy school teacher with barely enough time for leisure, but, despite that, finds that parkrun has changed her life…


“parkrun has brought so much positivity and enjoyment to my weekend. The atmosphere at Presint 18 is exciting and supportive, just like a family; it gives me a great sense of belonging. Meeting new, enthusiastic people each week makes the long journey to attend, worthwhile.”

Hanita has been a loyal member of Presint 18 since it launched, and looks forward to it each weekend. She is not interested in getting a personal best time but enjoys the experience of running and the beauty of the environment. Running along the lake, lined with greenery, has a calming influence on her.  “I love seeing so many cheerful families at parkrun running together with their children.”




Within a few months of parkrunning, Hanita had her first go at volunteering, and has tried many roles. She admits, ‘volunteering gives me a satisfaction that I have difficulty expressing in words.’


She eagerly awaits her 25th parkrun volunteering milestone and would love the opportunity to take part and volunteer at parkruns overseas.


And finally over to Hanita:
“The volunteer team, despite having many other responsibilities in their lives, are very energetic, enthusiastic and committed. This impresses me greatly and gives me such hope for the future. Thank you to parkrun P18, Putrajaya for changing my life; it is so much more healthy and rewarding.”
