Our mission at Carry The Load is to provide an active way to connect Americans to the sacrifices made by our nation's military, vets, 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 mission has since broadened to include more than just our military heroes and veterans, but also first responders and their families. No ticket is necessary. Register at CarryTheLoad.org/Register and invite/share with friends and family. We encourage participants to bring a memento that symbolizes the load you carry, such as a rucksack, photo or name badge.
