CHARLEVOIX, MI (RNN) – When a little boy was separated from other runners in his group during the Jeff Drenth Memorial 5K, he asked a Marine, who was also running the race, for help.
"Sir? Will you please run with me?" 9-year-old Boden Fuchs asked Lance Cpl. Myles Kerr.
According to a post on the Seal of Honor Facebook page, Kerr not only ran along with Boden, he also encouraged the boy to finish the run when Boden wanted to give up.
Kerr accompanied Boden to the finish line where the boy was reunited with his group.
An onlooker at the race snapped a photo of the two running together that has been making its way around Facebook and Kerr is surprised by the attention.
"The picture really took off," Kerr recently tweeted. "I was on the radio! And I have a meeting with the newspaper."
