Run for Rodriguez
October 5, 2013 - 8:00am - 10:00am
This past spring the OCU community was deeply impacted by the sudden loss of Josias Noel Rodriguez, a 19 year old sophomore in the traditional program. Josias was a graduate of Tree of Life Christian High School and was known as a shining example of Christian character. Josias was a man after God’s own heart and an incredible friend to many on campus. Though he was well-liked and voted a class favorite and homecoming king, Josias was always focused on God and others.
On Saturday morning October 5th, enjoy the beauty of OCU’s campus and the surrounding area with an invigorating run or a scenic walk. Whether you’re a first timer or a seasoned veteran, you won’t want to miss this inaugural event. All proceeds from the 5k go to the Josias Rodriguez Ministry Scholarship Fund.
OCU established the Josias Rodriguez Ministry Scholarship Fund to preserve the legacy of this special young man. This scholarship will be awarded each year to a current Ministerial student in need of financial assistance. Your participation in this event will honor the life and legacy of Josias Rodriguez and also impact the lives of future students seeking to further their education at Ohio Christian University.
The 5k will be timed by Buckeye Timing out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Visit http://buckeye-timing.com for more information.
