Boy behind ‘Running 4 Heroes’ honors fallen Trooper Chad Walker
WACO, Texas (KWTX) - A young man whose non-profit organization continues to support law enforcement is honoring fallen DPS Officer Chad Walker.
Zechariah Cartledge ran two miles in honor of Walker as part of his Running 4 Heroes organization.
Cartledge and his organization holds multiple runs all-year long honoring law enforcement and officers killed in the line of duty.
Cartledge says his ultimate goal was to help officer walker never be forgotten.
