THE STORY:

I am running in the 2016 NYC Marathon on November 6, 2016. I have chosen to run for The V Foundation for Cancer Research. The Foundation was started in 1993 by North Carolina State Basketball Coach Jim Valvano who was struck down by cancer at a young age. The Foundation has agreed to earmark the funds raised for research in Colon & Rectal Cancer, a disease I treated for over 30 years and a disease that took my uncle.

 

 

Team V is the official endurance fundraising program for The V Foundation for Cancer Research. We are a committed team of athletes fundraising with strength and determination for the fight against cancer.

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.

In the past 22 years, The V Foundation has awarded more than $150 million to cancer research and related programs nationwide.

Jim Valvano’s “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”® spirit is alive now more than ever. And it is the perfect motto to carry us through the largest marathon in the world.  With continued support, we will forge ahead with innovative research. Join us on Team V or support us through a donation – either way, you are making a difference and saving lives.
