Carry the Load Dallas Memorial March : Where It All Started

In 2011, the Carry the Load Dallas Memorial March began as a 20-hour, 11-minute Memorial March on Memorial Day around White Rock Lake in Dallas. It started as a grassroots effort by two Veteran U.S. Navy SEALs Stephen Holley and Clint Bruce who felt like the nation had forgotten the meaning of Memorial Day.
A decade later, Carry The Load has turned into a worldwide movement to honor our nation’s heroes and make Memorial Day matter again.
The Dallas Memorial March continues to be Carry The Load’s flagship event. It is a two-day embodiment of the values Carry The Load hopes to further — a celebration of heroes, remembrance of the fallen, and education in respectful observance.
The Dallas Memorial March is the culmination of Memorial May fundraising to benefit our Continuum of Care partners.
We encourage all Americans to do something meaningful on Memorial Day, even if it is simply stopping for the moment of remembrance at 3 PM local time on Memorial Day Monday, May 30th 2022 to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
