Martina Fans Fight Cancer
Martina McBride fans inspired by her newly released song about cancer entitled, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” will gather in Nashville, TN, on October 15th to walk for cancer research causes.
McBride fan club members from across the country will join cancer survivors featured in the song’s video to participate in The American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5 Mile Walk” at LP Field in downtown Nashville. Last year this event drew 18,000 walkers and raised $500,000 to help the society’s breast cancer research program.
The team, gathering from 6 states, estimates they will walk over 700 miles while in training for this event and aims to raise $11,000 for breast cancer research. A female team member will shave her head in honor of those fighting breast cancer if the goal is met.
