May 2016 - Eileen Fannon
Congratulations and thank you to Eileen Fannon for being our May 2016 Volunteer of the Month! Eileen is one of our dedicated run leads and has made a remarkable impact on the In-Training programs and their participants!
How long have you been volunteering with Atlanta Track Club?
Much like my membership with Atlanta Track Club, it has just always seemed part of my adult life. Let’s just say in the neighborhood of 15 to 20 years.
Do you remember your first time volunteering with Atlanta Track Club? If so, what event was it and what brought you back again?
I am sure it was something Peachtree related. To me, a club is something one participates in actively. It is definitely the community and fellowship that keeps me involved.
What is your favorite Atlanta Track Club event? Why?
The AJC Peachtree Road Race. The way this event and the greater community interact makes it the greatest race on the planet. It is my favorite thing about Atlanta and that makes me most proud of my home town.
What is one of your best memories from volunteering at any race?
I love seeing all the familiar faces. Running and Atlanta Track Club have made my life very full. I am quite thankful for that. It is more of a warm feeling than a particular memory. And that is not even a joke about the heat and humidity!
What is your favorite thing about volunteering with Atlanta Track Club?
The people, the people, the people.
Do you have a favorite volunteer assignment?
Yes, I love being a run leader with the In-Training programs our club has to offer. I love seeing the progress people make in their journey, and over the years the support that blossomed out of these programs for the people involved. It is a special connection.
Tell us something interesting about yourself – an interesting fact or story that will help us get to know you…
I am a minister of the Universal Life Church and have performed four weddings.
