7’s Martinez warms up dancing shoes ahead of gala fundraiser

CORAL GABLES, FLA. (WSVN) - A member of 7’s family is dancing her way toward raising cancer awareness, but first it’s time for a practice run.

7News anchor and Deco Drive host Lynn Martinez joined other participants of an upcoming dance competition at Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Coral Gables, Wednesday night.

The competition will form part of “One More Time, Dancing for a Cause,” a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society set to take place at the JW Marriott in Brickell, April 8.

Six of the dancers, including Martinez, met their partners for the first time and gave attendees a taste of what’s to come.
