Over 100 people have kindly volunteered with On My Feet. The following is a small sample of the amazing On My Feet volunteer team.
Meg considers herself to be a learner runner. In 2016, she went from only being able to run 2km without stopping, to running a few 12 km events non-stop. Meg is a midwife and works in Aboriginal health with families in their homes, as well as volunteering in several areas with vulnerable people. She loves On My Feet as everyone is equal, everyone has their own challenges and own goals. She is thrilled to have just conquered the 12km City to Surf race.
Perth Footsteps Coordinator
Ian joined our Perth Chapter as a participant at its inception in August 2015. Ian was committed from the beginning to making positive changes to his life, and he embraced every opportunity we could offer him. He has since been appointed as Perth Coordinator, managing all Langley Park training sessions. He has also completed several half marathons and is currently training for Melbourne Marathon 2016. Ian is a testament to what is possible through motivation, commitment, and running within a supportive community.
Run Champion, Melbourne
Holly has been involved with On My Feet since its inception in Melbourne, and is stoked to have been around to see it grow at a rapid pace. Holly has recently started working in the Victorian Premier’s office on family violence policy reform. She is passionate about helping others and also volunteers at a community legal service on monday nights. Her hobbies include gardening, playing lacrosse, and exploring the outdoors.
Johanna Leahy Marstrand
Johanna started running at 40 and is a passionate advocate for the positive mental and physical benefits of running at any age – or speed. She is an accredited running coach who particularly loves working with beginners, getting them past the ‘I hate running’ stage. She is happy putting her extensive social media experience (hours wasted on Facebook) to good use with On My Feet. A regular at Perth running events, she loves nothing better than cheering on our participants, and making them pose for photos at the finish line.
