Chance and the Takers manager:
Frost completed his ride from Miami to Key West. He rode for two days and 176 miles. The help and support he received along the way was inspiring. A massive thank you to the crew at Mile0Fest, Red Dirt Relief Fund, IVs in the Keys, and Epic Living with Jean. It gave Frost the opportunity to give back and bring awareness to fighting addiction with healthy alternatives.
“I've been playing drums for a living full-time for five years, and the pandemic completely pulled the rug out from under me, as it did for so many other musicians. Red Dirt Relief Fund helped me and many of my friends back in March 2020 before any of us could get on unemployment. If it wasn't for them, and the awesome work they do, we wouldn't have been able to eat that month. I couldn't be more excited about this fundraiser.”
Red Dirt Relief Fund is also a charity partner of Mile 0 Fest, so when Frost approached the nonprofit about the idea, it was a no-brainer. According to RDRF Executive Director Katie Dale, “Stories like Frost’s that have come out of pandemic give us all hope, not only for live music to return post-pandemic, but that our music community remains resolute despite seemingly impossible odds in the past year. He’s an example to all of us.” Since the pandemic began, RDRF has delivered more than 900 grants totaling $272,000 to out-of-work music industry professionals across Oklahoma. The nonprofit was founded in 2012 to provide a safety net of critical assistance to all Oklahoma music people.
“If there is a silver lining to this pandemic at all, it's that it has made me reevaluate who I am and what's important to me. I've realized for me the two most important things in life are adventure and connection. I got into cycling hard core as an alternative to addiction. I'd like to be living proof that you can live a healthy life and still be fully actualized with your creative potential on the earth.”
