Josiah Borden was awarded a 2021 Mazda SUV for his contributions to COVID-19 patients at ICU units at The University of Pennsylvania and Temple University.

PENNSYLVANIA, USA — At the beginning of the pandemic, he worked three nights at Lancaster General Health.

But, his week was far from over.

The next day, a University of Pennsylvania student made an hour-and-a-half commute to Temple University hospital where he worked two nights.

His week still wasn't over.

This was the schedule for Josiah Borden, 28, who worked tirelessly during the pandemic to treat COVID-19 patients in the ICU units at The University of Pennsylvania and Temple University.

The Mazda Hero's program ensured his efforts didn't go unnoticed.

On Jan. 6, the program awarded Borden with a 2021 Mazda SUV for his contributions to the hospitals.

The Mazda Heroes: Honoring The Human Spirit program was an initiative created to shine a light on individuals across the country who have dedicated themselves to their community throughout 2020.

This light shined bright on Borden who became infected with COVID-19 twice during the thick of the pandemic, but this didn't dull his luminescence.

Though Borden is recognized as a hero, he still doesn't consider himself one.

"I think this is about them [patients] more than me honestly," said Borden. " I'm no hero, I'm just apart of a team that is passionate about helping other people. "
