Carry the Load an emotional event for participants

WFAA report: About 20,000 people participated in the Dallas event, raising $1.1 million, organizers say.

The applause went on for several minutes as those who’d been on an all-night trek came off the Katy Trail. It was the end of a two-day journey which brought complete exhaustion — and total emotion.

“Very emotional,” said George Buttler, choking back tears. He and his wife, Kristi, held hands as they left Reverchon Park after the closing ceremonies of the 2014 Carry the Load Memorial March, which raised $1.1 million. See story, WFAA.com.
