Our 8th year! This fun event celebrates the Everyday Hero!! We’ve been honored to have veterans, first responders, small business owners, kids, walkers, runners of all levels, and awesome volunteers who give their time for their community. That’s what this run is all about – celebrating the Everyday Hero. It’s more than a race!
The 8th 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! More than a great citizen, Jerome was a fun, adventurous Dad & Grandpop! Jerome enjoyed exploring with his kids and grandkids, and Nottingham Park was one of his favorite places to hike!

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.
