Zack Brown of Porterville served proudly in the United States Army. He was deployed overseas twice and when he came back he started volunteering for the local chapter of the Veterans of Foreign War.
Last year the Brown’s 5-year-old son Marcus was diagnosed with cancer. Through the devastating news and the treatments, Brown stayed strong for his family and his community.
Brown and his wife are avid cyclers, which inspired them to start their own charity rides for families like theirs dealing with childhood cancer.
Zack Brown is a family many, a veteran and a local hero. Congratulations Zack!
