Bruce & Tim Crossed the United States In 57 DaysFrom left- Tim Haley, Bruce's mom Sherry Trowbridge, Bruce Trowbridge

About 35 people attended a reception at
the Morley Pavillion at Gold on Saturday,
honoring Bruce Trowbridge who ran and
bicycled across the United States this summer
to raise money and bring recognition to his
non-profit corporation, Provisions for Life,
that has a goal of drilling water wells in Mali, Africa.

A monitor was set up showing slides of hundreds of pictures that Bruce and Tim Haley, his support person for the journey, took on the venture.

Bruce is headed back to St. Bonaventure University to finish his last semester, but will continue to raise funds to bring fresh water to the African Nation of Mali. Family and friends gathered to recognize what a superb accomplishment these young Potter County men did with this project.

Anyone who would like to donate to this project is encouraged to check out their website
and anyone who missed the Journey across the Nation can read their blog and see the pictures and video of the trip. Solomon's words carried their blog each day at they crossed the nation this summer.
