FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As the first partnership in the nation between a university and Susan G. Komen®, Texas Christian University's Frogs for the Cure (FFTC) has raised awareness of breast cancer, supported survivors and their families, offered education and raised funds for the cause for 11 years. Every fall, FFTC produces a music video with a song recognized as an anthem of courage for anyone who has been touched by breast cancer. This year's music video features the iconic 1960s song "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," performed by NBC's "The Voice" finalists, Luke Wade and Mia Z.
The video can viewed online at bit.ly/fftc2015video, and the song is available for purchase on iTunes at bit.ly/fftc2015song. Through October 2016, 81 cents of each download will be donated to Susan G. Komen.
Filmed in Los Angeles, Montana and on the TCU campus, the video showcases breast cancer survivors, TCU students, faculty, staff, athletes, alumni and community leaders. FFTC debuted its annual music video at halftime of the blackout breast cancer TCU football game on October 29 versus West Virginia University. During the halftime show, breast cancer survivors, their families and the TCU community joined Wade, Mia Z and the Frogs for the Cure team on the field to celebrate the video debut.
"It's been inspiring to see the way that people have taken part in TCU Frogs for the Cure this year," said Luke Wade, a season 7 finalist of "The Voice." "Mia and I are honored to support a program that impacts the community in such a positive way."
Sponsors of the music video are JPMorgan Chase and the Robert M. Rogers Foundation. Sponsors of the 2015 Frogs for the Cure game were Baylor All Saints Medical Center Joan Katz Breast Center and Barnes and Noble College.
