Fargo-Moorhead group rallies to get Taylor Swift for run-walk for disability awarness


A group in the Fargo-Moorhead area has put together a video in an effort to get country and pop star Taylor Swift to participate in a run and walk for disability awareness, WDAY-TV reports.

Creative Care for Reaching Independence (CCRI) has put together a video about the upcoming event, the 5K Run & Walk 'N' Roll-a-thon, on Sept. 5 in Moorhead.

CCRI executive director Shannon Bock said the idea came up at meeting for the event since Swift will be in the area around the same time, since she's playing the Fargo Dome Sept. 6.

The idea seems conceivable, since Swift has a short break in her tour schedule after her show in Tacoma, Wash., Aug. 31, and has no other shows scheduled until the Fargo show. After Fargo, Swift will play two gigs at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, on Sept. 7 and 8.

The video, which has gone viral in Fargo-Moorhead, features several people dancing to Swift's music, along with some personal pleas for her to join the event.

WDAY said they reached out to Swift's management with information about the video, and in turn, the management said they would reach out to the singer's publicist.
