In Ohio, Cox recognized Erin Lally of Strongsville, nominated by Parma Heights Mayor Michael Byrne. Mayor Byrne cited Erin’s commitment to raising a family with five kids, while also volunteering through her church’s youth ministry program, working in person at City Hall every day since the pandemic began, and juggling all of the sports, music, and schooling-related activities that comes with five children.

Erin and all of the winners across Cox’s Northeast footprint will receive a $1,000 award to help with everything from paying down expenses to replacing lost income due to a spouse’s work injury. Winners were informed via Zoom meeting joined by their nominator, friends, and local Cox representatives.

“As many of us know on a deeply personal level, mothers do far more than they are ever given sufficient credit for,” said Rob Brill, market vice president, Cox Communications. “We were excited to launch this campaign with the goal of shining a light on the unsung heroes in our lives who do so much to contribute to their communities through hard work and selflessness that knows no bounds. Happy Mother’s Day to the moms in our midst and thank you for all that you do.”
