The T.J. Martell Foundation recently surprised the CAA staff with Dunkin' Donuts as a reward for leading the Music Industry Challenge in support of the Dunkin' Donuts Family Fun Run & Walk-A-Thon.

The 2nd Annual Dunkin’ Donuts Family Fun Run & Walk-A-Thon was a sweet success, drawing a crowd of over 600 families for the recent 5K race in Nashville’s Centennial Park, and netting $30,000 for the T.J. Martell Foundation. Hosted by Eddie and Taj George and Family, the event featured energetic performances by teen favorites pureNRG, Madison Cain and actor/singer Luke Benward, plus a family picnic and games.

On race day, the final tallies came in for the T.J. Martell Music Industry Challenge and Creative Artist Agency (CAA) was named the winner for recruiting the largest team with over 34 individuals participating. As the grand prize winner, CAA is receiving the music industry team trophy and a Dunkin’ Donuts breakfast bash.

“I give the credit to CAA agent and team coach Blake McDaniel who is an avid runner and daily inspired our staff to rally around such a great cause,” said John Huie, Co-Head of CAA Nashville and T.J. Martell Foundation Board Member. “I challenge anyone else in the music business to try and beat us next year!”

Proceeds will benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation’s mission of funding innovative cancer research at the Frances Williams Preston Laboratories at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.
