Jimmy Wayne To Hold Rally Halfway On Walk For Homeless
April 1, 2010 at 8:42 AM (PT)
A rally will be held for VALORY MUSIC CO. artist JIMMY WAYNE at noon (CT) on SATURDAY (4/3) in AMARILLO, TX at the HASTINGS RECORD STORE to commemorate the halfway point on his “Meet Me Halfway Walk” from NASHVILLE to PHOENIX to raise money and awareness for homeless teens.
WAYNE said he has been getting a great workout during the project. He said: “Since I’ve stopped wearing my backpack, I’ve been able to pick up my [walking] pace. I’ve felt my knees and my back get soar out here on the road, but the key for me has been stretching, wearing the right shoes, and drinking a lot of water. I’m making sure I take stretch breaks throughout the day, because my hamstrings have a tendency to tighten up. You know, in hindsight, I don’t know if there is a way you can train for something like this. I didn’t. I’ve just always been really active and I felt like I could pull it off.”
Last week WAYNE was stopped by the police while walking on the outskirts of MUSTANG, OK.
JIMMY said: "We pulled up in this little small town and asked the police officer for directions. He pointed in the right direction, then about 20 minutes later, he showed up with a canine unit and stopped us on the side of the road to search the vehicle with the canine. He took our licenses and did all this research. He found out that we were OK."
