Youth Volunteer of the Year AwardPresented by Vicky Verano
This year’s recipient of the youth volunteer of the year award is a an 11-year-old young lady who attends Hawks Rise Elementary School. She began running at the age of six years and hasn’t stopped since then! She has volunteered counting laps at the Tallahassee Ultra and Swamp Forest, two long races that take a dedicated person who will stay to the very end.
This recipient is also known to finish a race and then jump in and help work the finish line. This year’s recipient is an avid reader, loves gymnastics and, according to a rumor I heard,will eat anything smothered in mushrooms! Congratulations to Leah Kiros as this year’s recipient of the youth volunteer of the year award!
