Running for Heroes
10-year-old Zechariah Cartledge runs to honor the lives of our True American Heroes, our First Responders and Military. Zechariah led the BBO team of over 163 participants at the 2018 NYC Tunnels to Towers run, to honour PO Michael Chesna (Weymouth, Massachusetts PD).
Zechariah’s goal for 2019 is to raise $100 for every fallen officer in 2018, for a total of $15,000, as his fundraising goal for the 2019 Tunnels to Towers event. He has also chosen to run a full mile with his flag, each and every time there is a Line Of Duty Death in 2019.
You can see Zechariah in action, in this 10-minute Facebook video he posted on January 17, 2019, honouring Officer Natalie Corona of the Davis, California PD.
Zechariah’s courage, honour and energy is both humbling and deeply inspiring, and we at BBO are proud to support this amazing young man.
