JEFFERSON, Ga. (AP) -- An athlete raising money for an injured Georgia toddler has raised more than $150,000 during a 900-mile cross-country bike ride.
Dave Nazaroff left from New York City Wednesday morning, and arrived in Jefferson, Ga., Monday morning as part of the fund-raising effort for Tripp Halstead.
The boy was on the playground of his day care center in Winder when a large tree branch fell and struck him on Oct. 29, 2012.
WSB-TV reports that money raised will be used to ensure that Tripp's mom, Stacey Halstead, can stay by his side while he recovers.
