August 2016 - Dinnie Rogers
Congratulations to Dinnie Rogers, our August 2016 Volunteer of the Month! Dinnie has been volunteering with us for three years, and is a dependable All-Star Volunteer, always arriving early and helping us set up our events long before participants arrive. After he volunteers, you’ll find him on the course, participating in the races!
1. Do you remember your first time volunteering with Atlanta Track Club? If so, what event was it and what brought you back again?
I volunteered for a Kilometer Kids event at Grant Park and loved helping the kids.
2. What is your favorite Atlanta Track Club event?
Peachtree is my favorite. I love the joy of running with friends, and the community support. (Dinnie volunteers beforehand, of course!)
3. What is your favorite thing about volunteering with Atlanta Track Club?
I enjoy being able to help other runners and other volunteers, and to give something back to the community.
4. What other organizations do you volunteer for?
I volunteer for Boys Club of America, Junior Fire Fighters and Boy Scouts USA.
5. Tell us something interesting about yourself – an interesting fact or story that will help us get to know you…
I am a retired fireman. I was named firefighter of the year in 2000. I come from a family of 10: five sisters and four brothers!
What others are saying about Dinnie…
“Dinnie recently retired from the Clayton County Fire Department, and he has brought the same level of enthusiasm that being a firefighter requires to his support of our races and the Kilometer Kids.”
-Scott Harriss, Volunteer Crew Chief
“Set-up volunteers show up before the sun does, but Dinnie always arrives ready to put a little sweat equity into the race. I always know set-up is going to go just a little bit smoother when Dinnie is around, and we’re thankful for the donuts he often arrives with. It’s clear Dinnie takes great pride in his work with Atlanta Track Club and considers us part of his extended family, which is a privilege since he’s always glowing with stories about his family and years as a firefighter.”
Jennie Coakley, Atlanta Track Club Staff
