As many of you know, David 'Higgo' Higgins has been a bedrock of Kembla Joggers since 1987. His volunteer contribution to our club has been immense and was formally recognised in 2011 with a Kembla Joggers Life Membership. Done Martinoski best summarised Higgo's contribution noting that "David is a tireless worker, club person and proud club member that has not only demonstrated a long term commitment to Kembla Joggers at the highest of levels, but has provided a significant, and exceptional contribution, to our club through his work on the Clubhouse, ANSW and athlete support. We are lucky to have him and proud to recognise him as a Life Member."
This recognition by ANSW only adds to the awe of Higgo's involvement with KJs in that he also volunteers so much time, energy and passion to our state competition body of Atheltics NSW, inbetween and often on the same days of our events.
We are very grateful to have Dave represent and advocate for KJs at ANSW, as well as his ongoing contribution to our club. Nothing ever gets Dave down, even the with the situation we find ourselves in at the moment, he has found the opportunity to dive headfirst into more course maintenance, upgrades and repairs at West Dapto with our XC course team!
