Wednesday December 10th, Braveheart Day!

Texas weather is unseasonably cold. But, that didn’t stop the team, leaders, and volunteers. The first group arrived around 5:15am (25 degrees). The crowd reached over 200 and included a special March of Dimes contingent. They marched with Texas pride to the existing house and rallied around the Wall Homes team. Hoorah! This was the official kick-off to our Braveheart/Demolition day. Special guests – Championship Bull Riding, complete with an amazing group of horses were filmed racing in the field across from the home and then circled the home in front of our crowds. One horse in particular, had the honor of starting the demolition by pulling the chimney off the roof. Roar! At 3:00 p.m. today, the demolition team was on standby with heavy bulldozing equipment… ready to do some demolition! At 3:45 p.m. the house was leveled.

My personal thanks again, to Wall homes and Extreme Makeover: Home edition for allowing me to be apart of this amazing project! Also, Today's demo. images were made possible huge in part to the nice Ft. Worth fire fighters who were on set. They let me climb on top of the truck to be able to get a better view of the house being leveled. Especially thanks to Les for freezing while he kept me from falling off the top of the truck. Please continue to check the official site for this project at and to see all the amazing people who help make all of this possible.
