Country music artist Scotty McCreery has been a strong supporter of charitable causes close to his heart, such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This month in honor of the Mercury Nashville / 19 / Interscope recording artist, the Scotty McCreery Fan Club has created “The Southern Belles,” a team named after his new single, “Southern Belle,” to participate in the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer in Nashville on Sept. 26 at Edwin Warner Park at 8:00 AM — and they are asking their fellow fans to join them.
Anyone who wants to join “The Southern Belles” can visit http://walkrun.stjude.org/southernbelles to sign up to walk with the team, donate money to St. Jude for the fight against childhood cancer, or both. Each person who donates will be entered in a drawing for a McCreery prize pack. More information can also be found at www.scottyfans.com/news.
As part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, St. Jude will be holding Walk/Runs all over the nation on Sept. 26. The Nashville event has a goal to raise $210,000 for the cause, and “The Southern Belles” are excited to help the hospital reach its goal.
“I’ve always said I have the greatest fans in the world, and it makes me both happy and proud to see them create ‘The Southern Belles’ as a way of raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said McCreery. “St. Jude performs miracles regularly for children from all walks of life. I am truly honored and thankful that my fans want to support such a worthwhile organization in my name.”
McCreery’s new single “Southern Belle” can be heard nationwide on country radio and is available for purchase at http://umgn.us/southernbelle.
