Chip Hawthorne is driving across the entire state of Florida in his lawnmower to raise money in support of Habitat for Humanity of West Orange County. “Being a 6th generation Floridian — I love my community,” Hawthorne said. “And if riding a mower across the entire state of Florida helps provide someone a home in my community, then it’s been a good use of my time.”
Chris took off from a beach in Titusville last Thursday and he will ride an average speed of about 10 mph until he reaches the Gulf of Mexico in Spring Hill around 8 p.m. this Thursday.
