Day 1 of Dal's walk for the American Red Cross


WTOC’s Dal Cannady is on the move.

He finished the first of 7 days of walking on Wednesday. This stage took him from Hazlehurst to Baxley.

He started this morning from Thompson Hardwood and Beasley Lumber which suffered a horrendous fire almost two years ago. Back then, it left several buildings destroyed. They remember the work Red Cross did over several days of that fire.

"We had more than 200 firefighters out here then and somebody had to feed them. We didn't have to worry. Red Cross took that on and they ran with it,” said Ashley Tyree, Beasley Lumber.

From there, it was 13 windy miles along 341 to get to Baxley and spending lunch time with Ms. Sarah Boatright as she encouraged her customers to give.

This evening, Dal will be across the highway at Woody Folsom Automotive. Woody's supporting this cause himself and Dal will be there until 9 p.m. if anybody wants to come by with a donation to help the Southeast Georgia Chapter of American Red Cross.
