Henry Schein announced its continuing support for the Carry The Load Memorial May campaign, raising awareness for Memorial Day.

Henry Schein announced its support for the Carry The Load Memorial May campaign, a month-long Memorial Day awareness program providing active ways to connect Americans to the sacrifices made by the US military, Veterans, first responders, and their families.

As a national sponsor for the second year in a row, Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global corporate social responsibility program, in partnership with Henry Schein’s Veterans Engagement Team (VET), North American Rescue (NAR), Henry Schein Dental, Henry Schein Medical, and Henry Schein One, will participate in the activities being held across the US throughout May.

Additionally, the businesses will sponsor the Dallas Memorial March, a 2-day celebration of heroes, remembrance of the fallen, and education in respectful observance of Memorial Day.

Carry The Load’s Memorial May initiative was created to honor and remember the people who died while serving in the US military. During the 32-day event, beginning on April 27, 2023, Team Schein Members will take part by walking in the National Relay, attending a rally, and fundraising.

“Henry Schein is a purpose-driven company, and collaborating with Carry The Load helps to advance our mission of supporting communities in which we live and work, including our service members, first responders, and their families,” said Brad Connett, chief executive officer, Henry Schein North America Distribution Group. “It is important that we pause this Memorial Day and commemorate the individuals who protect our freedoms and especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.”

Carry The Load is a non-profit organization founded more than a decade ago as a grassroots effort by two Veteran US Navy SEALs to restore the meaning of Memorial Day and to raise awareness of the sacrifices of men and women in uniform.

“We are grateful to once again partner with the Henry Schein team to recognize and remember our nation’s heroes,” said Stephen Holley, co-founder, president, and CEO of Carry The Load. “It is meaningful to see our sponsors, and the countless other companies and organizations involved, come together for the common purpose of honoring the lives of those who have gone before us.”
