Martin Truex Jr. and partner Sherry Pollex established the MTJFoundation in 2007 to help children in need. The foundation is well known within racing circles for its Catwalk for a Cause in Statesville, North Carolina. It has steered $600,000 toward cancer initiatives at Atrium Health and Novant Health in Charlotte. Today at 5:30 p.m., Truex Jr. will put rubber to the road during the NASCAR Xfinity Series Championship Race at Phoenix Raceway.
To Martin Truex Jr., racing in the NASCAR circuit means more than jockeying between competitors. The New Jersey native and his longtime partner, Sherry Pollex, use his position to support the community with causes like ovarian and childhood cancers. Truex Jr. and Pollex established the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation (MTJFoundation) in 2007, which started as a way to help children in need.
Since Heather Deyo couldn't make it to the track today, we wanted find a way you could still be here at Martinsville Speedway.

We are honored to have your name on Danny Bohn's truck!

It's a brand new year🎊 AND #TealTuesday 💙 so let's make a resolution to be the best advocates for our health! We know our bodies better than anyone. If we sense something is out of synch, let’s contact our physicians and get it resolved. Ovarian Cancer symptoms are often misdiagnosed so keep on top of persistent issues.
• Every 23 minutes, a woman is diagnosed with #ovariancancer.
• Women have a 1 in 75 chance of developing it in their lifetime.
• Ovarian cancer is the number one cause of gynecological cancer deaths.

Through the support of @mtjfoundation, families @levinechildrens have access to fresh and healthy foods at the Mecklenburg County Market.

10-year-old Brooklyn recently stopped by the market with her family and enjoyed picking out a few of her favorite fruits and vegetables! Brooklyn was diagnosed with Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma in October of 2020 and has endured chemo, radiation, surgeries, and severe side effects over the past year. Thankfully, her scans came back clear last month, and her family is hopeful that she can live a healthy childhood again soon!

Thanks to Martin, Sherry, and the loyal supporters of the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation, a healthy and nutritious diet is possible for many patients families treated within the Levine Children’s Pediatric Cancers and Blood Disorders division. 🍎🥕

Your continued support gives us the ability to support Levine Cancer Institute in so many ways, including a monthly art class. Cancer patients, spouses, and loved ones are able to relax and enjoy a new hobby (and lots of laughs)!

Susan, a 10-year survivor of pancreatic cancer, attends regularly, and has even been inspired to create a ministry, leaving uplifting art throughout the institute for cancer warriors to take home when needing a pick-me-up. As always, we couldn’t do any of it without YOU!
