The Junior Woman's Club of Jefferson Township will hold the 13th Annual Memorial Wrobo 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, October 2, 2011 at 9:00 am.
Each year the Memorial Wrobo Run is held in honor of 2nd Lt. John T. Wroblewski and raises funds for various community projects. Oak Ridge resident 2nd Lieutenant John Thomas (J.T.) Wroblewski succumbed to injuries sustained while battling in Ramadi, Iraq in April 2004. J.T. was a lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps. He joined the Marines only days after the 9-11 attacks, determined to make a difference. He left behind his mom, dad, three younger brothers, his widow and many additional family members and friends.
The Junior Woman's Club of Jefferson Township has elected to donate the proceeds from this year's Wrobo Run to create a "Reading Garden" in memory of Robin Carlson, White Rock Teacher who passed away in 2011 after a long battle with cancer. Her dedication to the students will truly be missed.
Twenty percent of the proceeds from this event are also earmarked for the Jefferson Township High School scholarship award.
