Who is our Everyday Hero?  That would be Jerome Rodio.  This run is inspired and dedicated to the memory of Jerome.  He moved to Oxford after serving in the Navy and a career as a Philadelphia police officer.  He opened a business along Third Street and immediately began volunteering in the Oxford community.  At the time of his death in 2016, he was President of the Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce and fully immersed in many volunteering efforts in our community.  Although Jerome came to Oxford later in his life, his impact was felt immediately.  He made our community a better place to live, work and play!  Proceeds from the run, benefit the Oxford Veterans Breakfast and Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce.  In 2020 due to Covid 19, proceeds from our virtual run benefited Wreaths Across America due to the Breakfast being cancelled.

A great day of running and friendship. Smiles, cheers and high fives greeted the 100 runners on our Hero course.  Special thanks to Team Run 856!  Jerome’s son Patrick is a member of this NJ running club.  For the past three years, they have come out in force to support this run!  Thank you!
