Profile

For many, Memorial Day is about lounging by the pool or standing around a barbecue grill. Not so for the Carry the Load organization. The veteran-founded group seeks to return some gravity and thoughtfulness to the holiday, by reminding participants of the burden shouldered by our nation's military. As such, they're hosting one of the most intense events you're likely to see over the long weekend, with a march clocking in at just over 20 hours. It begins and ends at Reverchon Park, following the length of the Katy Trail. Overnight camping in the park is encouraged, but attendees can also come and go as they please, even just to participate symbolically. The event ends on Memorial Day proper, with a closing ceremony taking place at 12:30 pm.
