The Akida H. Jordan Perseverance 5K Walk/Run for Cancer Awareness

The Akida H. Jordan Perseverance 5K Walk/Run for Cancer Awareness is one of Tau Lambda Lambda’s signature fundraisers dedicated to helping Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s counties bring awareness to cancer. To honor Akida and the work that he’s done in establishing this event, our second Annual 5K Run was named after him. Upon planning our 3rd Annual 5K Walk/Run, it was only fitting that we make the name change permanent. From our chapter members to our volunteers, we are all working together to help raise funds to support those affected by cancer. Through funds donated, time given, or awareness raised, our communities are teaming up to make a difference. When we rally together in the fight against cancer through this fun and inspirational event, we can accomplish anything.

Akida Hodari Jordan was born in Philadelphia, PA. A die-hard Eagles fan, he was very passionate about his home sports teams. He attended Livingstone College in Salisbury, NC. where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Management. Bro. Jordan worked as the Health and Wellness manager for the Washington Metro Area Transit Authority (WMATA). He was initiated into Omega through the Tau Lambda Lambda Graduate Chapter in Southern Md. He served as the chair of the Health Committee and was a member of the Ways and Means Committee. Bro. Jordan established the chapter’s Perseverance 5K Walk/Run, which will continue in his honor. He was a member of Cornerstone Baptist Community Church in Temple Hills, MD.
