Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
As managing partner of Klemchuk Kubasta LLP (KK LLP), a leading full-service intellectual property (IP) law firm, Darin Klemchuk is leading a team in the 2013 Carry the Load Dallas 20-hour Walkathon. The event, which takes place over Memorial Day Weekend, raises awareness and funds for organizations that aim to serve military heroes and their families.
The complete Carry the Load campaign begins April 30 and ends on May 27, where participants will collectively trek from New York to Texas while carrying rucksacks, to raise money to benefit the Snowball Express, TAPS and Team RWB. The relay, which comprises nearly 2,000 miles, is divided into 348 legs with the final four legs coming through Dallas on May 26, the Sunday before Memorial Day. The Dallas-leg of the event will start at Reverchon Park on Sunday, May 26 at 3:30 p.m. and will end on Memorial Day.
Klemchuk, as well as other members of the KK LLP team, are asking friends, family and colleagues to “put the Memorial back in Memorial Day” and remember, honor, and support American troops through participation in – and donation to – this event.
“Our firm has always placed a high level of importance on continued community involvement,” said Klemchuk, himself a veteran. “There can sometimes be a disconnect between what Memorial Day means, and how it is observed. By participating in Carry the Load, we’re able to support the men and women who have selflessly made the biggest sacrifice in honor of our country and have given us our freedom and security. I am honored to walk alongside the other participants on a day of remembrance.”
There are no entrance fees for this relay, and all donated funds will directly support military organizations. As of early May, Carry the Load has raised $147,819 toward its $1M goal. To sign up as a participant or to make a donation to Team Klemchuk, please visit the Team Klemchuk page.
