NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Martin Truex Jr. established The Martin Truex Jr. Foundation in 2007 to raise awareness, boost advocacy and generate financial support for children suffering from poverty, abuse and serious illness, specifically childhood cancer.
In August 2014, Sherry Pollex, Martin’s longtime girlfriend, was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Through their experiences, Martin and Sherry found purpose and focus, and their mission shifted to raising awareness, boosting advocacy, and generating financial support for underfunded cancer research initiatives specific to ovarian and childhood cancers.
It is through generous donations, lasting partnerships and educational events that the foundation is able to continue this mission in 2015 and beyond. Together, we have the power to improve lives, inspire smiles and realize dreams. We will Never Give Up.
