End In Sight For Wayne’s 1700 Mile Walk

Some doubted, but the faithful have been rewarded as Jimmy Wayne’s 1,700 mile walk from Nashville to Phoenix, Arizona draws close to a successful completion. The country artist traveled through one of the coldest winters and hottest summers on record visiting states such as Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico along his pathway.

Wayne’s Meet Me Halfway campaign is designed to raise awareness of children who age out of the foster care system, and without any sort of support, can end up homeless. All along his 1700 mile path, Wayne has talked to individuals, media, and politicians to make them aware of this situation and discuss possible solutions. In May he was named National Celebrity Spokesperson of FosterClub of America, the only organization representing youth in foster care.

Wayne is now expected to reach finish his trek at month’s end. Plans are now being set for Wayne and his band to perform a July 31 free evening concert at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill. The next morning, Aug. 1, the artist will invite supporters to join him in walking the last mile of MMH to Homebase Youth Services, his final destination.
