We are excited to announce the inaugural winner of Achilles Melbourne volunteer of the month! Nominated not once, but twice, our June winner is newly crowned marathon man, TIM EMENY! The reason for Tim's nomination? Read on!
"Tim helped / semi-forced me to join a local running club soon after I moved to a new area and not only found and trained other guides, he also organises transport for me. This has not only helped me start to really enjoy running, but it has also enabled me to meet new people and settle into the area. He has also offered to help me learn my way around the local shops and introduced me to the local fresh food market after the regular Sunday training"
Congratulations Tim, thank you for always going above and beyond! You hold the true philosophy of volunteering with Achilles and set such a great example for everyone around you.
