VIDEO: Making its way to Dallas, one step at a time. Literally.
“Carry The Load” made its way into Northeast Ohio Monday. It started with a mission to restore the meaning of Memorial Day, but the group has expanded its efforts to include the sacrifices of first responders as well.
Bryce Roland told us, “’Carry The Load’s’ mission is to provide an active way to honor the sacrifices of our nation’s heroes and their families.”
Five teams are spread throughout the country, with the goal of walking about 20,000 miles to Dallas, Texas in 32 days. The teams will stop periodically, to spread the message and honor local heroes, like Cleveland firefighter Johnny Tetrick, who lost his life in the line of duty last year. The newest class of Cleveland firefighter cadets came to meet ‘Carry The Load’, and honor Tetrick at the Firefighters Memorial.
