Jimmy Wayne didn't let a broken foot hobble his efforts as he completed his Meet Me Halfway walk from Nashville to Phoenix, Sunday, Aug. 1. He arrived at HomeBase Youth Services in Phoenix as promised, walking the last few days in an air cast because of a broken foot that he suffered while walking through mountainous terrain.

Jimmy, who spent a good portion of his youth in North Caroline as a homeless teen, began the walk on Jan. 1 in Nashville to raise awareness of youth homeless issues.

The "Stay Gone" singer braved extreme cold and heat, snow and rugged terrain during his walk. But he also  noted that several people offered him food and shelter along the way. "It's been worth it, one step at a time," Jimmy said in a statement. "It's going to take this kind of action to raise awareness."
