Carry The Load stops in Wichita ahead of Memorial Day 2023

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Carry the Load National Relay stopped in Wichita on Friday, just two days before Memorial Day.

Carry the Load is a nonprofit that started in 2011 with a mission to restore the true meaning of the holiday. It provides active ways for Americans to connect to the sacrifices made by the military, veterans and first responders.

“We want to keep their memories alive for those that have paid the ultimate price with their life, if they’ve made that sacrifice and even for those that serve every day or maybe have retired or are no longer in service but also their family members,” said Michael Williamson, a cyclist on the route.
