As Noel and I step down from being Country Managers we’d just like to share some of our memories over the last 7 years.
At each parkrun around the country you have all brought special gifts and talents and we are so proud and thankful to have shared this journey with you. We simply can’t thank you all enough.
Our family has been such an integral part of this journey as well with Caitlin and Kelly both being volunteers from day one at Cornwall Park. Caitlin took on more responsibilities over the years and has been a constant source of help to us. We’d like to acknowledge her passion and dedication to parkrun New Zealand here as she steps aside from being the Regional Ambassador, but she will continue as the Event Director at our local Cornwall parkrun.
We’ll continue to be high-viz heroes because orange is definitely our colour!
So farewell, but not goodbye and thank you to everyone around the country for such wonderful, special memories – such a priceless gift which we can treasure forever!
Noel and Lian de Charmoy
