On Tuesday evening, Running 4 Heroes Inc.’s 11-year-old leader, Zechariah Cartledge will take on a 1-mile run for District 3 volunteer firefighter Lieutenant Larry Dean Adams.

Cartledge will start his run around 6:30 p.m. CST in his hometown in Central Florida, while carrying his flag.

The run will be uploaded to the Running 4 Heroes Facebook page after the completion of the run.

Citing safety concerns, if law enforcement cannot be present during the run time, or if weather doesn’t allow, the run will be postponed for a later time.
