The First Responder Face-Off Foundation is proud to be a non-profit partner of Carry The Load and we’re excited to bring awareness and visibility back to Toledo on Sunday, May 15, 2022.
In 2021, we partnered with the Mid Ohio Jeepers Organization (MOJO) for a Jeep convoy to Toledo from Columbus on National Peace Officer’s Memorial Day, to pay tribute at the Toledo Police Memorial in memory of two fallen Toledo Officers. Afterwards, the group was welcomed to the Toledo Jeep Assembly Plant for photos of their rigs in front of the Jeep sign. The event in total raised over $4,000 for Carry The Load.
Hockey Helping Heroes debut in Toledo with the Walleye at the Huntington Center
In January of 2022, we partnered with the Toledo Walleye for a charity hockey game between the Toledo Police Hockey team and the visiting Columbus Police Hockey team. The game raised over $13,000 for the establishment of the TPD Fallen Officer Memorial Scholarship.
We’re excited to return to the city that built the vehicle that won the war on Sunday, May 15, 2022 – and we’re proud to partner again with the Mid Ohio Jeepers Organization and the UAW Local 12 Jeep Unit to show our support for all of our fallen within the mission of Carry The Load.
