How will you be honoring and thanking members of our Military, Law Enforcement, Firefighters and their families for their sacrifices this Memorial Day? We’d like to invite you to join our team this Memorial Day in Dallas, TX for Carry The Load.
Carry The Load is a life-changing journey for people as they walk or run as long or as little as they can in the 20-hour period. Like the service members they honor, they carry more than they have to, longer than they think they can.
Carry The Load
We’ve organized a team to participate in the event and are calling on you to show up and help us Carry The Load. As mentioned, there’s no commitment to the whole 20 hours that we’ll be there. To register for free on our team we’ve dubbed the ITS Tactical Joint Task Force, click here. Even if you can’t make it out, you can help us reach our goal of raising $2,500 for the event’s charities. To donate to our team, please click here.
We attended Carry The Load last year in Dallas and it was a huge success, both personally and as a team. We had a great group of people show up, including the crew from Madcat Aviator Operator. I had a runkeeper going during last year’s event and during the 20 hours and 12 minutes we walked, which showed the ground covered was 33.81 miles.
While I was hurting afterwards, carrying a weighted pack and an American Flag and Navy Flag, it was the least I could do to remember my friends that have fallen. Please don’t feel that you have to participate in the whole event, or even carry a weighted pack, we’d love to have you on our team for just an hour if possible. We’ll provide an update as we get closer to the event with a place to meet up so we can all start together.
Carry The Load — Dallas starts on Sunday, May 26, 2013 at 3:30 p.m. and goes through Monday, May 27 at 12:13 p.m. It’s being held at Reverchon Park in Dallas, TX. If you’d like to participate and join our team, sign up here.

Already signed up and ready to go! I participated in Carry the Load last year with a buddy of mine and we were at Reverchon/Katy Trail for the entire 20 hours and 12 minutes. It was definitely one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Looking forward to this year's CTL! My friend and I are going to attempt to walk/jog 50 miles in the 20 hour period with weighted packs. Maybe I'll see y'all there!
