DALLAS, April 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Carry The Load, a nonprofit that provides active ways for Americans to honor and remember the sacrifices made by our nation's heroes, is kicking off its Memorial May campaign on April 23. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Carry The Load offers meaningful ways for participants to form teams, build community and fundraise virtually now through Memorial Day.
"In this time of uncertainty, our mission and our purpose has not changed," says Stephen Holley, president and CEO of Carry The Load and veteran U.S. Navy SEAL.

Carry The Load's National Relay has always reminded us to come together as a community to honor these sacrifices," said Retired U.S. Army Colonel Mark Elliott, Global Head of Military and Veterans Affairs at JPMorgan Chase. "Perhaps now more than ever, we are grateful for the opportunity to join Carry The Load virtually to pay special tribute to our heroes past and present."
