Carry The Load

The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation is proud to partner with Carry The Load to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day.

Carry The Load provides ways to honor the countless military, law enforcement, firefighters and rescue personnel who dedicate their lives to keeping our country safe. The Carry The Load National relay is an event throughout the month of May leading up to Memorial Day.


Ways to Show Your Support

Donate in Honor

Thank a military, police, or fire hero for their service and sacrifice by making a donation. Your donation will promote healing for those who have served and for families whose loved ones have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Remember Someone
