Shane Wooten to Walk Across Florida
In an effort to raise support to push the latest hit single “Running with a Redneck Crowd” into national radio markets, Shane Wooten and Nic Ward are walking across the state of Florida. Proceeds will also benefit a local charity.
“We expect to raise more than just the marketing cost,” said Wooten. “And that’s why we have partnered with the Ronald McDonald House in Orlando.”
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida finds, creates and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and families. The organization provides a “home-away-from-home” that offers comfort and care to families of children being treated at local hospitals and medical facilities.
The approximately 160-mile trek from Daytona to Clearwater will start January 28th, 2011. Performances are scheduled in each town, including a stop at Gator Harley in Leesburg.
Is such a trip possible on foot? A blistering pace of 4 miles an hour for 5 straight days is a formidable challenge. But fans of the band seem undeterred.
“I don’t know if it’s possible or not,” commented one fan. “I’d pay $20 to see Shane try. Here’s twenty bucks, Shane. I DARE you to walk across the state.”
