August 18, 2015 Activity Update – US Route 6 – Ohio – Pennsylvania Border
Ohio – Pennsylvania Border: For Gilbert, Ohio had its share of uplifting events.
She was moved by the unexpected support she received from the residents of East Cleveland at 7:30 PM in a neighborhood considered one of the most dangerous in the nation. Kindness of strangers included encouragement, advice, cheers, and the generous offer of a gallon of water.
This event is made possible by the encouragement, coordination, and sponsorship of the U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association whose state and national coordinators (volunteers one and all) have gone to extraordinary lengths to assist Gilbert in her journey with logistical and networking support and opportunities to share her passion for her cause with numerous audiences.
Gilbert wishes to extend a special thank you to uncounted companies, organizations and individuals who have contributed to her charity and have welcomed her with meals, lodging, and other support. This generosity provides her with inspiration as she continues her grueling journey day after day.
