THE ZACHARY LITTLE MEMORIAL RIDE & 5K
ABOUT THE RIDE
Zachary was just 11 years old when he passed away due to a type of brain cancer that affects children called Medulloblastoma.
Mary Ann and Edward Little, Zachary’s parents, along with his brothers Ryan and Chase, wanted to honor Zachary’s memory by establishing the “Zachary Little Memorial Fund” through The PineBelt Community Foundation.
Money raised will benefit four organizations: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital, the Catch a Dream Foundation, and Sumrall High School (to benefit a scholarship program).
