Bridge to Bridge is a 4,000 mile coast to coast bicycle trip across the United States organized by former Providence Network resident, Spencer Nee. Between May and August, Spencer rode from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Brooklyn Bridge and raised nearly $60,000 for Providence Network.  All donations raised through the ride supported Providence Network's effort to focus on the growing homeless population of youth and young adults, helping fund a new recovery home in Denver.  He filmed a documentary along the way about others in recovery and his incredible adventure. The editing has taken a back seat to his full time work and graduate school schedule, but will be completed in the next couple years.


I woke up one morning under a dumpster lid in downtown Denver, trash liquid oozing onto my only pair of clothes. I was hungry, sick, and completely alone.

I had lost my way as years of bad decisions and alcoholism had stripped me from my family, home, friends, jobs, health, dreams, and hope. In that moment, I decided to change and found the Providence Network. Through their help, I have restored my relationships and rebuilt my life.

This trip is a chance for me to give back by raising money and awareness for an organization that I really believe in — one that gave me the structure and support I have needed to live the last seven years (and counting) sober.
