Bike ride raises $155,000 for injured Georgia toddler

JEFFERSON, Ga. — 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., this 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 (http://bit.ly/15aZnXl) that money raised will be used to ensure that Tripp’s mom, Stacey Halstead, can stay by his side while he recovers.
