parkrun Hero - 3rd April 2019

Volunteer Hero: Emile Evert


Regular parkrunners at George will know the smiling face at the finish when you receive your token.


Emile Evert has become known as our Finish Token Officer because he has made the volunteer role his own.

Even though Emile hasn’t done the parkrun itself, he has become an integral part of our successful event.
