HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, June 20, 2023/ — Houston area media personality Freddy Cruz announces his newest podcast Cruz through HTX.

Cruz, Moreno, and Garay will attempt to set and break as many 4th of July-themed world records as possible, all in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Helping a Hero, a nonprofit dedicated to building homes for America’s wounded veterans.

“When Freddy presented the idea, I was excited to be a part of history, and what better day than on July 4th. As veterans we are excited to celebrate this day this way and with our city. We love this town and their support, and we are looking forward to a great turnout,” said Garay.

The livestream event will feature appearances from veteran and motivational speaker Frank Fields, local leaders like Pearland mayor Kevin Cole, bestselling author Anna J. Walner, and a host of World War II and Vietnam War veterans. It will take place at Pearland Podcast Studio.
