MEMORIAL WROBO RUN: The 24th Annual Jefferson 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, October 2, 2022.

The GFWC Junior Woman’s Club of Jefferson Township (JWCJT) is proud to announce this year’s MEMORIAL WROBO RUN: The 24th Annual Jefferson 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, October 2, 2022.

The Wrobo Run was established to honor Oak Ridge resident Second Lieutenant John Thomas (J.T.) Wroblewski, who succumbed to injuries sustained while battling in Ramadi, Iraq. 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. Keeping his memory alive is the JWCJT’s mission, in conjunction with our efforts to make a difference in our community, as J.T. strived to do for his Country.

The Junior Woman’s Club of Jefferson Township is donating the proceeds from this Wrobo Run to the following:
