Join the Carry the Load rally in Rockwall at 2AM on May 26.
Community members, students, parents, and all citizens are encouraged to show up to support Carry the Load’s mission of highlighting the meaning of Memorial Day across America.
This is part of a movement to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day—honoring the sacrifice of the countless military, law enforcement, firefighters and rescue personnel who dedicate their lives to keeping our country safe.
Rockwall historically has one of the largest rallies of the national relay. In 2015—in the pouring rain—more than 300 residents came out to cheer on the relay participants at the Rockwall County Courthouse. Carry the Load will be in Rockwall again for the rally, before the group heads to Dallas for the kickoff of the big event Sunday afternoon. Let’s show them Rockwall’s support!
