Edwin McCain’s song “Hold Out A Hand,” created for the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation’s Catwalk for a Cause, is available to download on iTunes and Google Play Store for 99 cents with all the proceeds earmarked to MTJF for childhood cancer research.
The song, written by McCain and Maia Sharp, was played to the video finale (shown above) of the May 13 Catwalk for a Cause, which raised more than $250,000 for the Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, N.C., and pediatric cancer research.
“Edwin McCain and Maia Sharp have provided us with a heartwarming song that depicts courage, inspiration and charity,” said Truex, driver of the No. 78 Furniture Row Chevrolet in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, in a statement. “It’s a song that carries a special purpose and meaning – we can all hold out a hand and make a difference. I want to personally thank Edwin and Maia for their support in our continuing efforts to fund childhood cancer research. Now we just need everyone to download the song.”
Catwalk for a Cause was conceived by Truex’s girlfriend, Sherry Pollex, in 2009. The annual event is highlighted with children, currently in cancer treatment, walking the runway with NASCAR drivers and their wives/girlfriends.
