Carry The Load’s Memorial May campaign takes place all month long to raise awareness and provide active ways to connect Americans to the sacrifices made by our military, veterans, first responders, and their families. Memorial Day is dedicated to honoring and remembering the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.

The National Relay travels 20,000 miles covering all continental 48 states, ending with the Dallas Memorial March. The Relay consists of five routes (West Coast, Mountain States, Midwest, New England, and East Coast), with teams walking throughout the 29-day Memorial May campaign, beginning on April 29th. It’s an amazing opportunity for people of all ages around the nation to honor and remember our fallen heroes.

Money raised from Memorial May goes towards supporting military, veterans, first responders, and their families so that they have access to counseling, adaptive training, suicide prevention, equine therapy, service dogs, job placements, transition, home improvements, scholarships for children, and more.
