The winner of volunteer for the month for September has not only been nominated by our human members, our furry friends have also wagged their tails in support! This month, we congratulate Karthish Kumar! Karthish was nominated because...
"Karthish arrives on his bike every Sunday, not to go for a run, but to keep our beloved dogs company as our resident dog sitter!! The size of the smile that lights up on his face as he greets our labs every week can make almost any dog lover pale in comparison. Karthish knows exactly how to manage each of their personalities and is so diligent with tending to their thirst, socialisation and pooping needs! He even makes sure new dog sitters are appropriately oriented to the process, and gives helpful hints for play time. Arriving after everyone has gone for their run, and leaving just before they all return, Karthish is our silent hero and we know our dogs absolutely love his company every week! "
Dog sitters are such important contributors to our running club so thanks for all your work with our beautiful guide dogs Karthish!
