1,700 miles. 27 days. 1 mission. Honoring America's Heroes. 
Join the Relay. Support America's Fallen Heroes.
Men and women across the United States are honoring America's Fallen Heroes in a 27-day, 1,700 mile cross-country relay. The relay is being organized by Carry the Load, a non-profit organization devoted to honoring America's military heroes and providing support to veterans and their families. Recently featured on Fox News and in Men's Health, the relay is helping the nation remember the true meaning of Memorial Day.

On May 1st, Carry the Load stepped off at West Point, New York. Over the course of twenty-seven days we will walk 1,700 miles to Dallas, Texas, the site of our flagship Memorial Day Awareness event. Join us on May 27 in Dallas, or at one of the 350 points along the road of remembrance. Those not able to participate in the relay can show support by sponsoring a leg of the relay or by donating directly to the campaign by visiting http://www.CarryTheLoad.org. To follow the Relay online, visit our Interactive Map.

From the Trail

The trek has been an inspiring walk of remembrance. The stories collected along the way as we walked to the World Trade Center Memorial with 9/11 families, stopped in Arlington National Cemetery with veterans and surviving spouses and rucked through small towns across the US symbolize the true meaning of Memorial Day.

Below are a few highlights from the Relay so far.
