Hundreds across the tri-state are showing their support for a local woman battling terminal cancer.
23-year-old Toni Black is headed back home from a trip with her family, and starting at about 5:00 Tuesday evening, folks are encouraged to start gathering around I-64 exits from Charleston to 29-th Street in Huntington.
In her hometown of Chesapeake, Ohio, Jill's Tumble World sold out of 700 shirts in less than an hour for people to wear tomorrow. They raised about $6,000 for Toni's family, and say they will be ordering about 1,000 more shirts this week.
High school friend Ashley Black says, "Seeing all these thousands of people that don't even know her come together for her, it's really nice because she's such a well-deserving person and it really means a lot."
If you want to be a part of the effort, wear hot pink and show up at one of the exits with balloons and signs to show your support for Team Toni! You can check out the "Bring Toni Home" Facebook page for updates on times for tomorrow.
