Halfway to Hazard Celebrates Raising Over $1 Million for Kentucky-Based Charities

Halfway to Hazard

Born and bred in rural Appalachia, Chad Warrix and David Tolliver, known as Halfway to Hazard, are celebrating an important milestone. The country duo surpassed the million dollar raised mark following the 7th Annual Crockettsville Charity Concert & Trail Ride, which was held this weekend and featured an all-star concert, with performances by charity founders Halfway to Hazard, Chris Young, Bucky Covington and more, and a 42-mile ATV trail ride.  The event raised over $140,000 with 11,000 attending.  In addition to the Crockettsville Charity Concert & Trail Ride, H2H have participated and helped organize events all over the state of KY, including the East Kentucky Flood Relief Telethon and the East Kentucky Tornado Relief Telethon.

The $1 million raised by Chad and David has been donated to charities all over their home state, including the Buckhorn Children and Family Services Charity, the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame, Trooper Island Camp and the Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky. Staying true to their musical roots, they’ve also donated a variety of musical and band instruments to schools in Rockcastle Co., Breathitt Co., Pulaski Co., Estil Co. and Wolfe Co. and have allocated funds to be used for music scholarships at various Eastern KY, schools.

“We’re proud of our roots and feel very blessed to be in a position to help our fellow Kentuckians,” said the duo. “It is an amazing feeling being able to help people while doing what you love.”

“Chad Warrix and David Tolliver, along with Concerts for a Cause and the Crockettsville Charity Concert and Trail Ride, have given children the chance for a better way of life,” said Charles Boggs, Director of the Buckhorn Children’s Foundation. “Sharing their gift and donating to Buckhorn has allowed us to meet the needs of the children during some very tough times for the center and for the state. I honestly do not know what would have happened to these children without their unbelievable support.”

They may have surpassed the million-dollar mark, but that doesn’t mean Halfway to Hazard plan on slowing down. The proud Kentucky boys have pledged to continue raising money and giving back to the region they love. The duo are also working on a new album and have plans to shoot a TV show about their long-awaited return to music. For more info on Halfway to Hazard, please visit: halfwaytohazard.com
