MT. JULIET, Tenn. -

Several communities came together this weekend to help a woman fight for her life.

The public was invited to come and join a Poker Run to benefit Jerrilyn Hall, a Mt. Juliet woman who is battling breast and ovarian cancer.

Hall's friends and family rallied to organize the run on Saturday.

"When they found out I had cancer, the moment they found out, they started this Poker Run and it evolved and people from other states, from Alabama, Missouri from all states are coming just for me. I'm very thankful," Hall said.

Hundreds of bikers came to ride and help raise money.

The route began at the Corner Pub on Mt. Juliet Road in Mt. Juliet and continued through Hendersonville, Nashville and Old Hickory.

The benefit came to an end with a silent auction that included an autographed item from Blake Shelton and a luxury suite at a Nashville Predator's hockey game.

Donations can still be made by sending checks to:

P.O. Box 915
Mt. Juliet, TN  37121
