Carry the Load 2019 Update

Courtney P. Cowan | 8.23.19

Congratulations to Carry The Load for all their hard work so far in 2019.

ByrdAdatto is honored to actively participate with Carry The Load. As a reminder, Carry The Load is a non-profit organization that was founded to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day by connecting Americans to the sacrifices of our military, law enforcement, fire fighters, and rescue personnel. Additionally, a significant part of the Carry The Load mission is to seek financial support through peer-to-peer fundraising.  The founders also wanted Carry The Load to become a fundraising arm for non-profit partners who provide direct services and make huge impacts on healing the families of our military, fire fighters, first responders and rescue personnel.

This year, Carry The Load kicked off their National Relay by having teams travel from Seattle, Minneapolis, and West Point to Dallas, Texas as the ultimate destination. Participants in the Relay walked and cycled a combined 11,500 miles to help raise awareness for Memorial Day. Celebrating its 9th year, the Dallas Memorial March was held this past Memorial Day Weekend, with 506 teams and 5,207 people participating.  Team ByrdAdatto also proudly walked in the March.

Carry The Load’s goal for 2019 is to raise a total of $2,500,000 for its 2019 non-profit partners. So far, Carry the Load has raised approximately $2,493,223, with ByrdAdatto contributing $27,000. You can help make an impact to thousands of military and first responders across the country by donating here.

ByrdAdatto wishes continued success for Carry The Load in 2020!
