Recently, three Dallas Capital employees participated in the Carry The Load march to support the non-profit that is dedicated to honoring and celebrating the sacrifices made by military veterans, law enforcement, firefighters, rescue personnel and their families.
Hunter Burns, IT Network Technician, Chanel Dent, Executive Assistant, and Sabina Connor, Executive Assistant, completed a total of more than 50 miles strapped with military packs to show their support for the cause.
Hunter first got involved with Carry The Load through his father who was close to the organization’s founder, Clint Bruce. He participated in the annual walk for a number of years before one of his mentors, a police officer, was killed in the downtown Dallas shooting in 2017, which inspired him to raise funds with other Dallas Capital team members.
“I’m humbled by the support we have received over the last several years our Dallas Capital family,” said Hunter. “This cause is close to my heart, and after losing a childhood friend who was a marine earlier this year, this march was especially emotional. Although we have all lost loved ones, they live on through the strength and support shown by all their friends and family who help Carry The Load.”
Hunter made a video from this year’s Carry The Load march, and there are additional photos below of him with Sabina and Chanel. Dallas Capital is proud of our employees who support our nation’s heroes.
