BENEFITING: The V Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
The V Foundation was founded by ESPN and former award-winning NC State basketball coach Jim Valvano. Coach Valvano was diagnosed with cancer in 1993. When he created the Foundation, he knew that it was too late for research to save him. But he spent his last months alive creating a legacy of hope for others diagnosed with this debilitating disease.
I chose to run for this charity because I've always been inspired by Coach V's message of "Don't Give Up, Don't Ever Give Up!!" But most importantly, I've been inspired by the strength and determination a family member has shown in her battle with cancer. I run for her and for the thousands of people who each day wake up with hope that they can beat this disease. Let's help them, as with your donation, of any amount, will help continue the fight against cancer.
