Zechariah Cartledge is an 11-year-old on a mission to honor every fallen first responder by running a mile in their name.

Last year he ran for Mission police corporal Jose 'Speedy' Espericueta, and a few months later for trooper Moises Sanchez. On Monday night he ran again for two more Rio Grande Valley heroes.

Each mile that Cartledge runs honors the life of a fallen hero. In total, he says that's 540 miles since last year.
