5K for Trey with the Hershey Lions Club

More About 5K for Trey with the Hershey Lions Club

Members of the Hershey Lions Club are partnering with one of its own members for a very important cause called the 5K for Trey planned for Saturday, October 12, 2019. In October 2018, Lion Brent Schultz’s son, Trey, 24, succumbed to an infectious disease called Mycobacterium Abscessus. In 2018, this disease, along with other infectious diseases, took the lives of over 100,000 Americans, with cases in the U.S. growing steadily over the past 5-years.

The 5K for Trey will raise funds to benefit research at the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center to find effective treatment options for infectious diseases, like the one that took Trey's life. It will also raise awareness in the community about the lack of funding and research in this area.

Trey Schultz started having headaches, vomiting, and inability to swallow in July of 2018 and had his first of 12-brain surgeries in September. He passed away on October 24th, after 41-days in the hospital or in hospice. His dad, Lion Brent Schultz, was inspired to make a lasting legacy in Trey's name to help prevent others from having similar experiences.

Lion Brent approached the Hershey Lions Club about a partnership for this event. “The Lions Club has been known for its service worldwide for over 100-years, and for 75-years in the Hershey community,” related Schultz. “Since I am a club member and my daughter is as well, it made sense to partner with the Hershey Lions,” added Schultz.

The Hershey Lions Club invites the community to help make a difference in this cause. The 5k run/walk event is taking place on the grounds of the Hershey Medical Center at 30 Hope Drive, Hershey, PA 17033, on Saturday, October 12, 2019, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon. Runners and walkers are invited to this family-themed event. Tee shirts will be available for the first 150-registrants.

Registration begins at 8:00 AM, with a short program at 8:30 AM, and the race beginning promptly at 9:00 AM. Participants are encouraged to arrive early to pick up race bibs and receive pre-race instructions. This will be a timed event and medals will be given out to winners of various age classes. The course will be mostly flat with low-grade hills, starting in the parking lot of 30 Hope Drive, along Cherry Drive, then onto 322 to Centerview Drive, around the parking garage and following the same route back to 30 Hope Drive. There will also be a silent auction with sports memorabilia.

Additional volunteers for the event are invited as well. Contact Lion Brent Schultz at 717-639-7763 or historyrox28@yahoo.com with any questions. See more of 5K for Trey on Facebook.

Volunteer opportunities embody the Lions’ motto of “We Serve.” The Hershey Lions Club was organized and chartered in 1944 and has been continuously serving the residents of Derry Township since then. For more information about the Hershey Lions Club please visit our website at click for details.
