Memorial Day is the day that we as a country remember those who gave their lives serving this great nation. Sadly, it seems that many Americans have forgotten this, or get Memorial Day confused with Veterans Day.
In order to honor the true meaning of Memorial Day, we have joined our friends fromÂ MADCAT Aviator | OperatorÂ to put together a team forÂ Carry The LoadÂ Memorial Day weekend in Dallas, TX.
Carry The Load
For those of you who are not familiar with Carry The Load, it’sÂ a non-profit organization helping people celebrate a meaningful Memorial Day by conducting a 20-hour event that honors veterans and active duty service members, law enforcement officers, firefighters and their families.
Through event participation and sponsorship, Carry The Load raises money to support our 2013 beneficiaries: Assist The Officer, Heroes On The Water, Friends of Dallas Fire-Rescue, Tip Of The Spear Foundation and Sons of the Flag Burn Foundation.
Here’s a short video that describes what Carry The Load is all about.
Even though the event is 20 hours and 13 minutes long, you can participate for as much or as little as you want.
How You Can Get Involved
There are several ways that you can get involved with Carry The Load 2013.
Join Task Force Fallen Warriors
First off, you can join our team Task Force Fallen Warriors, and show up Memorial Day weekend to help us carry to the load. You can walk or run as long as you want and we’d love to have you join us.
If you can’t make it to the event, you can still join our team and donate to the cause.
Buy a Carry The Load Patch
In order to raise money for Carry The Load, we designed this PVC patch that we will be selling on pre-order for $10, with all proceeds going to Carry The Load. Big thanks once again to Dan for another great design (side note, if you ever need design work you can email Dan – email@example.com).
