Surbiton junior parkrun volunteers honoured

0

A parkrunning family in west London have been recognised in the local community for their volunteering at parkrun.

 

Nicola, Mark and twin boys James and Matthew, also known as Team Ronaldsons, are regular parkrunners with 950 5k parkruns and 326 junior parkrun events between them!

 

Stalwart volunteers at Surbiton junior parkrun in west London, Mark has recently taken up the role as Run Director, and Matthew is also very keen to take up the role in the future, volunteering in as many positions on a Sunday morning as humanly possible for a 9-year-old!

 

Nicola runs a free after school running club, which has encouraged other families to join in. They are a truly inspirational family and well known and well-loved at their home Bushy parkrun, standing out from the crowd of hundreds.

 

The Surbiton junior Event Director nominated the Ronaldsons for the Eileen Gray award for inspiring others in sport and they were truly deserved winners.
