Carry The Load Austin Rally
The Carry The Load Austin Rally mission is to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day. There will be a 32-day cross-country relay that culminates on an event in Dallas on Memorial Day. As a lead-up to the 20-hour Memorial Day walk, Carry The Load has three routes followed by walkers and cyclists across the country, handing off the American flag every five miles.
Participants are encouraged to bring a memento to symbolize the load such as a rucksack, photo or name badge.
