Boy celebrates his birthday with treats for his heroes

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Several Houston police commanders helped a young boy celebrate his birthday.

Tyler Carach will turn 10 on November 5, but he's getting an early start to his birthday celebration.

He plans to visit 10 states in 10 days, and thank police officers for what they do by bringing them donuts.

His "Birthday with the Blue" campaign made a stop at the Houston Police Officer's Union Hall at 9:00 a.m. today.

Tyler said he wants to be a K9 officer when he grows up so he can follow in the footsteps of his heroes.

So far, he has been in 19 states and handed out thousands of donuts.

He said it all started one day when he was at the grocery store with his mom and saw four police officers.
