Martin Truex Jr. Foundation/SherryStrong Host Catwalk for a Cause in Daytona Beach during Speedweeks on February 19th, 2022
For the past 11 years, the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation (MTJF) hosted their signature event, Catwalk for a Cause, in the Charlotte, NC area. Catwalk was created by MTJF co-founder Sherry Pollex, an ovarian cancer survivor and long-time partner of NASCAR Cup Series driver Martin Truex Jr., to put the spotlight on childhood cancer heroes for a night of fun and philanthropy.
In 2022, her Catwalk vision will be expanding to include a new location in Daytona Beach, FL, with a focus on the brave women diagnosed with gynecological cancers. These women will strut the runway alongside prominent women in NASCAR to create an unforgettable night for all on February 19th.
“I am excited to bring Catwalk for a Cause to the beach,” said Sherry Pollex. “I’m looking forward to shining the spotlight on women fighting the same battle that I am! This is going to be an incredible night to kick off the fundraising efforts for the new SherryStrong Integrative Medicine Clinic.”
A portion of the proceeds from Catwalk Daytona Beach will go towards the construction of a brand new SherryStrong Integrative Medicine Clinic with AdventHealth, located in Daytona Beach, FL. The clinic will serve as a holistic center that will address the physical, emotional, spiritual, and environmental needs of cancer patients to promote health and wellness, regardless of their ability to pay.
“AdventHealth is proud to partner with the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation and SherryStrong.” Said Ed Noseworthy, CEO of AdventHealth Daytona Beach. “This integrative medicine clinic will further our mission to provide whole-person care, treating the mind, body and spirit.”
In addition to the inaugural Catwalk for a Cause Daytona Beach, the 12th Annual Catwalk for a Cause signature event will be held in the Charlotte, N.C. area on September 14, 2022.
