Jimmy Wayne continues his trek to Phoenix, Arizona as part of Meet Me Halfway. Jimmy began the project in order to raise awareness for the children, teens and young adults who are homeless in this country. He started his journey on January 1 at Nashville's Monroe Harding, which is a foster care group home, with almost 75 people joining him for the first mile. He also obtained a 50 thousand dollar donation to the cause from his record label to kick start things.
Four days into his quest, Wayne shares an update on how things are going so far. With it being winter, he expected to endure low temps but not some of the coldest weather that the Southeast has experienced in quite some time. Jimmy says, "I knew it was going to be cold, but I didn't think it'd be THIS cold for THIS long. Thank goodness I have a tent and sleeping bag that are designed for sub zero temperatures. It's been tough going the past four days." But, for Wayne, he reveals that when things get difficult, there is something that inspires him to persevere and continue his walk. Jimmy shares, "When I get down, I just think about the kids at Monroe Harding, and all the kids like them around the country who may really be facing a homeless situation once they are too old for foster care and group homes. That keeps me going." For more information about Meet Me Halfway, check out jimmywayne.com.
