Carry the Load relay returning to Keokuk

KEOKUK, IA – Carry The Load, a non-profit that provides active ways to connect Americans to the sacrifices of our nation’s military, veterans, first responders and their families, kicks off its 10th Annual National Relay today to raise awareness for the true meaning of Memorial Day. The 32-day, 20,000-mile National Relay includes five routes crossing 48 states and 100 rallies before culminating at the Dallas Memorial March on Memorial Day weekend.

“For anyone who has lost someone in service to our country, they will tell you that participating in Carry The Load has made a lasting impact on their life,” says Stephen Holley, co-founder, president and CEO of Carry The Load. “There is nothing like the human touch. Being in that environment, walking side-by-side one another, and sharing stories demonstrates beyond words that people do care.”
