The Clock is Ticking Down to the 4th Annual Granger Smith Boot Walk
Come May 4th, for the fourth consecutive year, Granger Smith will be leaving on foot from South Austin on a 100-mile trek to Fort Hood in combat boots to show support for our military men and women. Get more info about the Boot Walk.
For past walks, Governor Rick Perry, former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell and a slew of other artists, fans and military supporters joined Granger and company, and this year’s walk is expected to bring out even more folks.
There are some Americans who understand and appreciate the price our military men and women pay, and the sacrifices they make. For them it’s a part of who they are. And whether it’s innately a part of you, or you were taught by parents and grand parents who understood — if you get it, you’ll always get it.
And then there are people who don’t understand it, and some who never will.
However Granger acquired his understanding, he’s one of the ones that get’s it.
This year Granger has set a fundraising goal of $50,000. All monies raised through the 4th Annual Boot Walk will benefit the Boot Campaign, a national 501c3 non-profit dedicated to showing tangible appreciation of our active military, raising awareness of the challenges they face upon return and supporting their transition home.
Purpose: To express gratitude, acknowledge service of military, past and present, and to raise support funds for the Boot Campaign.
When: Sunday, May 4th – Thursday – May 8th
Where: The 100-mile walk will depart from H-E-B in Oak Hill (South Austin) on Sunday, May 4th and end with a concert at Fort Hood Harley Davidson in Harker Heights, TX on Thursday, May 8th
Why: Granger will again be walking 100 miles in 5 days to support for the brave men and women serving our country, and raising funds to help Boot Campaign continue in cultivating awareness, promoting patriotism, and providing assistance to military and their families.
