Carry The Load 2013

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 from MADCAT Aviator | Operator to put together a team for Carry The Load Memorial Day weekend in Dallas, TX.

Carry The Load

For those of you who are not familiar with Carry The Load, it’s 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.

    Thank you for bringing this up. As a veteran from a family of veterans, I can say it means a lot to me to see others pushing the meaning as I do.

    Thank you for letting us know about this incredible outfit. Although I can’t walk,or “carry a load”, my brother was in Vietnam, came back different. I’ll do what I can up here, you do down there, maybe we’ll help some people who TRULY deserve it & ” never” ask for it. Thank you
