WHAT A DAY!!!

Gorgeous weather, friends – new and old, beautiful Nottingham Park, new run course (ok the hill are still there)!

Each year, this little run of ours that is so special continues to grow.  Not only in the number of people who attend, but it gets better.  For 7 years now, we see runners traveling from NJ to support this race.  There are hugs and genuine smiles.  We watch the kiddoes who would run in the fun run, now are running in the 5K.  This year our award age brackets went from under 12 to 80+.  At 88 Celeste Z. ran the 5K.  14 year old Chase Verbanas won race at under 20 minutes!  Families came out to walk the 1 Mile or cheer on Mom or Dad.  But as every person crossed the finish line – there were cheers!  Rival middle schoolers who battled to the finish line shook hands.  This is what it is all about!  Jerome would be so proud!!  

 

So mark your calendar for next year – third Saturday in August and someone please cue up the weather gods – today was GREAT!! 

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 our Sponsors!
