Jimmy Wayne Completes 1,700 Mile 'Meet Me Halfway' Charity Walk For Homeless Youth

Posted: Updated:

In January, country music star Jimmy Wayne set off across the country on a 1,700 mile trek to raise awareness about the plight of youth who grow too old for the foster care system and find themselves homeless. The issue is dear to Wayne's heart because he battled homelessness as a teenager, bouncing between foster homes.

On Sunday, Wayne completed the final leg of his journey, arriving at HomeBase Youth Services in Phoenix. Wayne has supported the organization, which helps at-risk youth in Arizona, through his 'Meet Me Halfway' campaign.
