If using our names helps the cause, we will do it
I can tell you that all four of us were very honoured and although it sounds cliché, humbled to be chosen. If you think we do what we do for the awards, you know nothing of us, or any other volunteer. We do it because it needs doing and we have a passion to make sure others can take advantage of, or perhaps be inspired, to join the sport, the Kinsmen Club, Lake Lisgar revitalization, The Carroll Trail.
I know Bill pratt didn’t like having his name in so many articles about the Cancer ride N Stride, but after 60 years volunteering for cancer fundraisers, if using his name will get free advertising and publicity and gain more for the cause, he and we, will do it and suffer the teasing and comments we get.
But as a friend said, perhaps the Awards Committee could honour more younger volunteers, like evan, to inspire more their age to help.
