MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A fundraiser benefiting the FedExFamilyHouse kicked off Friday night with an impressive first pitch at the Redbirds game.

Thirteen-year-old Bryce Wagner is an epilepsy patient at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis.

He and his family are from Texas and stay at the FedExFamilyHouse when they’re in Memphis for Bryce’s treatment.

“It’s a true home away from home while families are receiving care at Le Bonheur Hospital. And it is a pleasure to see the Wagner family receive such wonderful support while their child is here,” said Ken Frith, senior vice president of operations for FedEx Freight Direct and International.

The FedExFamilyHouse Virtual 5k Run-Walk is going on now through Sunday with a fundraising goal of $80,000.
