Update on the Travels Across the US: Bro. Troy Yocum

There is a Brother (Entered Apprentice) Mason, by the name of Troy Yocum. Bro. Yocum is an Army Veteran of the Iraq War, and a member of Jeffersontown Lodge #774 F&AM, which is located within the Louisville area, in Jeffersontown, Kentucky.
Before he had the opportunity to complete his Masonic Travels, he has a calling of a different travel that he felt need to be addressed first.
Bro. Troy left Louisville in April of this year, to begin his trek and is walking 7000 miles across the country to raise $5,000,000 to help military families. You can visit his website to find out additional information regarding the reason for this daunting task: http://drumhike.com/ as well as his Facebook site: http://www.facebook.com/HikeForOurHeroes
He has completed his travel from Kentucky to the West Coast as projected which was to occur just in time for the recent Veterans Day holiday.
He is now preparing to restart his travels, onward to the East Coast, before finally traveling from there back to Louisville, where his 7,000 mile trek will have been completed.
An aspect of this particular part of his travel will take place in the Phoenix, Arizona area and is called "Barefoot Hike for our Heroes" which is a 1 mile group Barefoot walk to set a NEW GUINNESS WORLD RECORD in Downtown Phoenix at the Wesley Bolin Plaza on Dec. 4th, 2010. anyone who wishes to participate can register online OR at the event from 8 to 10 AM for $20. The walk starts at 10 AM.
To register ONLINE for $20, anyone who wants to participate can go to http://www.active.com/walking/phoenix-az/barefoot-hike-for-our-heroes-2010.
This is entirely voluntary, and if any of the Brothers in the Phoenix Area would like to show their support by physically showing up and supporting him as a Veteran, as well as a young Mason, I'm sure that it would be also appreciated more than words can ever express.
