Carry the Load 5K Ruck/March

Carry the Load 5K Ruck/March

Just seven years ago, former Navy SEALS Clint Bruce and Stephen Holley started the nonprofit organization Carry the Load with the purpose of restoring the true meaning of Memorial Day by connecting Americans with the sacrifices of veterans, military members and first responders. Through walks organized to recognize and remember the fallen, Carry the Load seeks to raise funds to support organizations that provide direct services to our nation’s heroes and their families.

Come join Carry the Load and the Tampa community in a 5K (3.1 miles) march/walk/ruck down scenic Bayshore Blvd. Military/fire/police units, veteran organizations, Girl and Boy Scout units, ROTC/JROTC units, elected officials, and the general public are all invited. We encourage folks to carry an item whether it is a rucksack, memento or picture that is symbolic of the personal story or load the individual is carrying.

All ages are invited to join us at any point along the way, even if only for a few minutes, to show support. The Rally Point will be at Ferg’s Live with live entertainment and family friendly activities following the march. There is no fee to participate, but participants are encouraged to register at carrytheload.org/tampa_rally. Donations are collected through that site.
