Bank, bike club organize Pray for Trey bike ride | Events
(WMC-TV) – Cyclists can hit the streets this weekend and help support a 15-year-old Collierville boy who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Trey Erwin, a Collierville High School sophomore, was diagnosed with a form of pancreatic cancer rarely seen in adolescents earlier this year. Doctors say Erwin has stage four pancreatic adenocarcinoma, a disease only found in adults.
The Pray for Trey bike ride will take place Saturday, June 30, at Germantown Baptist Church, 9450 Poplar Ave.
“It has been truly inspiring to see the community pull together to rally for Trey as he fights pancreatic cancer,” says Phillip May, Metropolitan’s Memphis president. “We hope that this partnership between Metropolitan Bank, Memphis Hightailers and Germantown Baptist Church will add a big boost to the momentum to help Trey and his family stay strong and feel supported.”
The 1.7 mile family fun ride will cost $17 a person, but there’s a $50 maximum for large families. Taking part in either the 26 mile or the 52 mile ride will cost $45. Members of the Memphis Hightailers will only have to pay $40.
People who want to help the Erwin family, but won’t be able to take part Saturday, can sign up as a “ghost rider.” The cost is $30.
