When my personal journey with cancer began, I educated myself on the power and possibilities of integrative therapies, which most oncology physicians aren’t trained to prescribe. From acupuncture to diet, yoga, meditation and the healing that comes from connecting with other survivors, I wanted to take everything I’d learned and share it with others. We’re excited about the possibilities in working with Rare Country and are honored to partner with them.”

The Martin Truex Jr. Foundation’s signature annual fundraiser, Catwalk for a Cause, is a night of celebration for families with children who have overcome or are still fighting cancer.

“The NASCAR community – family, really – has come out and supported us every single year, and every year the event gets bigger and better, somehow,” added Truex Jr. “Watching these brave kids strut down the runway is one of the proudest nights of our year.”

In 2017, Belk partnered with the foundation to produce the fashion show portion of the star-studded evening. NASCAR drivers and their significant others escort each celebrated child down a runway.
