Deeds, not words.

We honor fallen soldiers on Memorial Day not just with the words we say but with the actions we take. We remember their names, their deeds, their sacrifice.

For Memorial Day we always say "res, non verba" or "actions, not words" and this year is no different.

We are proud to announce that for Memorial Day 2023 We Defy Foundation has been selected as a non-profit partner for @carrytheload! We will be raising funds all over the US to honor those we've lost and provide community, health, and service for our veterans.

- Every dollar we raise goes straight to We Defy Foundation. Carry the Load doesn’t take a percentage, they don't even charge us processing fees. This is huge!
- Our participation in this fundraiser is judged and our performance can help us to be chosen as a recipient of additional funds in the future from Carry the Load - your engagement matters!! Especially on social media!
- We will have a limited edition WDF Memorial Day t-shirt. This shirt cannot be bought, it can only be earned. If you register as an individual under your Region Team's Carry the Load page and either raise or donate $50+ you earn the tshirt. THIS IS THE WAY :)
