Carry The Load will be in Bossier City on May 26, Texarkana on May 27, and Mt. Pleasant on May 28. Carry The Load is a walk to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to defend our country, and to honor those in the military today.

The walk in Bossier will begin at 5pm at the Teague Parkway Recreation Area, turn around at Walker park, and walk back to the Teague Parkway Recreation Area. It's all to raise money for Carry The Load, asking that we donate to organizations that support the military.
