2021 Everyday Hero Run

What a great way to celebrate year 5!!!  Great weather, great cause, great day of friendship, running and fun. After last year’s virtual run, it was so nice to connect again outside. This run celebrates the Everyday Hero.  In our race yesterday there were veterans, first responders, small business owners, board members of non profits, school aged children and people who give their time in their community.  That’s what this run is all about – celebrating the Everyday Hero.  

Thank you to our 2021 Everyday Hero 5K Run Sponsors!

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.  

Thank you to all who came out and supported our 5th Annual Everday Hero 5K Run!  It was great seeing old friends and meeting new ones.  Shout out to Run 856 for the continued support, our sponsors, volunteers and D’Amico Law for the great after run party at the Octoraro Tavern.  See you next year for the 6th Annual Run!
