ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Sheep Dog Impact Assistance announced it will be hosting the “NWA Heroes Ruck & Rally” at Veterans Memorial Park next week to “honor the true meaning of Memorial Day.”

The event will be on May 21 at 8 a.m. and will include both a 5K and a one-mile run. Participants are encouraged to carry a weighted backpack with the names of loved ones on it to symbolically “carry the load” for soldiers killed while serving in the military.

As a Carry The Load (CTL) Non-Profit Partner for the 2022 Memorial May campaign, SDIA says it will help raise awareness and funds that are essential to helping military, veterans, first responders and their families.
