Carry The Load is a 501(c)3 organization co-founded by two Navy SEAL veterans who wanted to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day. Our mission has since broadened to include more than just our military heroes and veterans, but also first responders and their families.
As a lead-up to our 20-hour Memorial Day walk in Dallas, Carry The Load has three routes followed by walkers and cyclists across the country, handing off the American flag every five miles.

Our midwest relay team will be in Madison on May 5th for a pretty awesome walk from fire station to fire station. It's a great way to show appreciation for military, vets and first responders!
