Hooves for Heroes Featured on WFAA Channel 8!
See WFAA's coverage of Equest Hooves for Heroes as part of Carry the Load Memorial Day Event!
Carry The Load is a 20-hour Memorial Day event honoring and thanking members of the military, law enforcement, firefighters and their families for the sacrifices they make.
It’s a life-changing journey for people as they walk or run as long or as little as they can in the 20-hour period . . . Like the service members they honor, they carry more than they have to, longer than they think they can. Each participant is encouraged to make a donation to help the wounded and the families of the fallen. This year, we'll show our commitment by working in teams and as individuals to "carry the load" for 20 hours. Some will choose to carry weighted packs as a symbol of their commitment. It's a challenge to carry the load for others, to carry more than you think you can, further than you think you can.
Equest Hooves for Heroes in a beneficiary of this amazing event! Come out to show your support for the true meaning of memorial day.
May 25-26, 2014 at Reverchon Park/Katy Trail.
It's a life-changing journey for participants as they walk or run as long or as little as they can on the route along Dallas' Katy Trail. Much like the service members they honor, participants carry often more than they have to, longer than they think they can. Some may choose to carry weighted packs as a symbol of their commitment to Carry The Load.
