Miles Kerr

Lcpl. Miles Kerr is 19 years old and from Charlevoix, Michigan. Lcpl Kerr was running The Jeff Drench Memorial 5K at the Venitia Festival in Charlevoix, Michigan on Saturday, July 27, 2013, when he noticed a 9 year old boy named Brandon Fuchs was struggling. The boy asked him for help and Lcp. Miles Kerr finished the race with him (Source). Lcp. Miles Kerr is a Michigan Light because he helped him and finished the race with the boy.

Here is a video of the Fox News story where Lcpl. Miles Kerr is helped the young boy finish the 5K race in Charlevoix, Michigan.

Foxnews Insider explained the scene like this:
The boy had become separated from those who he had started the race with. He asked Lcpl Kerr, 'Sir? Will you please run with me?'. Througout the course, Lcpl Kerr urged him on when the boy wanted to give up and ensured that the boy saw the course to completion where he was reunited with his party (Source).

Special thanks to Lcpl Miles Kerr for being a Michigan Light in this Charlevoix 5K run for this boy who was in need. Lcpl. Miles Kerr is a fitting representation of the armed services personnel from Michigan.

Michigan Light honors diverse heroes who are light in the state of Michigan.
