The 10th annual Cruise for Corey Cancer Bike Ride will be held Saturday.
It has been 15 years since Marysville High School sophomore Corey Hoehn lost his 11-month battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma bone cancer.
Five years later, Corey’s father, Chris, organized the first ride to benefit the Corey Hoehn Memorial Scholarship Fund, which awards five Marysville seniors with a $1,000 scholarship each year.
Corey’s favorite number 33, which he wore in baseball, has come to be a symbol of his memory and will serve as the centerpiece for the event.
Chris Hoehn will ride 33 miles around the Marysville bike trails from 9 a.m. until noon. Those who wish to ride, run or walk during the event may meet at the event kick off at 8:45 a.m. at the Marysville High School football field parking lot.
A registration fee is required, which will include an event T-shirt.
Participants are asked to travel 33 miles or less.
Organizers had planned a cornhole tournament following the ride with food trucks, but local coronavirus restrictions forced those options to be canceled.
Those interested in participating may text Amanda Hoehn at 937-645-0287 or Chris Hoehn at 937-243-0079 to sign up.
Donations may also be made through a Gofundme page (Cruise for Corey Cancer Bike Ride) or through the Union County Foundation (Corey Hoehn Memorial Scholarship).
