A group of men and women walked through Portland on Friday carrying the weight of fallen soldiers and first responders.

It is part of a relay happening across the country organized by Carry the Load.

“That weight that we carry, every time we’re walking, every time our walkers or our bikers get out, we put a bib on our backpacks and we symbolize one of those lost soldiers or police or fireman, and we’re carrying them down the road with us every time so their names are not forgotten,” said David Lindsey.
