Trey's Motorcycle Run returns for 2nd year in honor of Onset teen
Sixty bikers revved up on Sunday in memory of an Onset teen who passed away from brain cancer two years ago.
Trey Miranda, who would have turned 20 last month, now has a foundation in his name that provides scholarships and school supplies for area students.
“We’re keeping his memory alive,” said Teena Miranda, Trey’s mother. “Before he passed, he said he didn’t want to be forgotten.”
Riders in the 2nd annual Trey’s Motorcycle Run left from the Dudley L. Brown Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 220 at 11 a.m. The 60-mile route featured a State Police escort and wound through Route 105, Route 18 and Myles Standish State Forest. Proceeds benefited the foundation.
The idea for the ride came from Randy Delgado and Shannon Silvia, friends of Miranda and motorcyclists.
At the end of the ride, music, raffles and a full chicken dinner greeted riders and others who celebrated Trey’s life.
Delgado thanked the more than 50 area businesses, organizations and residents who donated raffle prizes.
“We couldn’t have done this without them,” said Delgado.
