Join KENS 5 at Toyota Field in San Antonio this Wednesday as we join participants in the "Carry the Load" western relay to honor our nation's heroes.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will let San Antonians express their appreciation of our nation's military, law enforcement, firefighters and first responders.
The Carry the Load relay is traveling by bike and on foot from Seattle to Dallas for a Memorial Day rally.
The event in San Antonio, which is being held Wednesday, May 24, 2017, will be seen live on KENS5.com and during KENS 5 Eyewitness News at 4 and 5 p.m.
Relay participants will arrive at 4 p.m., and the ceremony will begin at 5 p.m. It will be hosted by KENS 5 Eyewitness News anchor Jeff Brady and will include speakers from the Carry the Load relay group.
Carry The Load is a non-profit dedicated to providing active, meaningful ways to honor and celebrate the sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes.
What started as a mission to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day has broadened to include more than just our military heroes and more than just the one holiday. Carry The Load works to bring all Americans together to participate in honoring our nation’s heroes every day.
