Black Men Run – The photo shared around the globe

This photo was taken at the Rock N Roll race in Phoenix on January 14th, 2017 and has since been viewed over a million times through social media and on broadcast television all over the world. The original photo was posted on the Black Men Run Facebook fan page and the back story can be found here:

“This is John Wilkie. He is 73 years old. He had a bad fall shortly before the 13 mile marker at the race yesterday. This support and I were able to pick him up and walk him across the finish line, so I could get him to the medal staff. He had a big gash in his head that required stitches, but he was in good spirit. Once they got the bleeding under control, I got his Finisher’s Medal and stayed with him until they said they had it from that point.” – Nathanael Dillard #blackmenrun#nomanleftbehind #ahealthybrotherhood
