2019 Everyday Hero Run
The 3rd Annual Everyday Hero is a fun, family friendly 5k Run and 1 Mile Walk dedicated to the memory of Jerome Rodio, an Oxford man whose great deeds and selfless acts helped bring together the community of Oxford, PA! Run (or walk) the scenic route through beautiful Nottingham Park!
Proceeds benefit the Oxford Chamber of Commerce, where Jerome was president at the time of his sudden passing in July, 2016, AND the Annual Veterans Breakfast!
Two Special groups of runners joined us on August 18. Run856 from NJ was the largest group of runners at the race. Named for their area code in NJ, this group came out to support Patrick Rodio, Jerome’s son who is a member of the team. They swept the awards with top honors in the both Overall Male and Female categories.
How did a group of people, some from Indiana, who are the first to tell you they are not runners, end up at our run? Well, team FatDag, as they are known was looking to add to their “International Tour” by racing in 5K runs this summer. They designated August 18 as the “Philadelphia” stop on their tour. They found our Everyday Hero Run on our race website. Their inspirational story can be found here. Thanks for stopping by – we had a great time meeting you!!
