Memorial May Awareness Campaign

Several Organizations Team Up to Kickoff Memorial May Awarness Campaign

On Tuesday, May 7, 2019 Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, the County of Los Angeles Department of Veteran Military Affairs, and Higher Ground Los Angeles, teamed up with “Carry The Load” to continue in the kickoff of Memorial May awareness campaign.

Sheriff Villanueva shared a few words to help encourage, motivate, and show gratitude to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Not only to those serving our nation, but also those serving our communities.

Each participant walks or rides to “Carry The Load” for a deceased military service member or Veteran, remembering them and honoring their sacrifice. Everyday should be a remembrance of the ultimate sacrifice given.

Sheriff Villanueva said, “We owe a debt of gratitude, and each and every one of us is touched by a veteran, or by someone who lost their life in the service to our nation or to our community.”

"Carry The Load" is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing active, meaningful ways to honor and celebrate the sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes – military, veterans, first responders and their families.

Congratulations to the participants who completed the Final Leg of “Carry The Load” Memorial Day awareness campaign in Los Angeles.
