New York Road Runners induct Barbara Klasewitz into volunteer Hall of Fame
The New York Road Runners honored Barbara Klasewitz by inducting her into the New York Road Runners’ 2022 Volunteer Hall of Fame.
The 64-year-old has been a NYRR Open Run volunteer for six years, helping at about 250 runs.
She credits the program with helping her improve her quality of life, including losing nearly 100 pounds.
She called the induction “an honor” and said she would continue to volunteer as long as she can.
Since 2015, NYRR Open Run has been bringing free, weekly community-led runs and walks to neighborhood parks across all five boroughs.
