Hey everyone 😊
After a long hiatus, a bit of thinking of where to next, and putting focus towards work, parkrun and personal life... we are back, sort of 😜
Based on my experience as event ambassador, and hearing the experiences of others, new parkrun events often hit an issue of having the $5k needed for start up, but struggling a bit with the $2k needed for a defib.
The good news is that existing events appear to be fully kitted out with defibs now - so it would be nice to help remove one of the barriers experienced by new events.
So keep an eye out soon for a GoFundMe campaign, with a goal to provide the defib cash to at least 10 new events over the next 12 months.
I’ll be using my own running and triathlon event participation to help promote the cause, encourage others to do the same, and between us help deliver the benefits of having a parkrun event to at least 10 communities 😊
