BENEFITING: The V Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Sadly, we all have relatives and friends that have been diagnosed with cancer. I am running this years NYC Marathon for a team that is at the forefront of the fight against cancer.
I am running for Team V who serves as the official endurance fundraising program for The V Foundation for Cancer Research. My Team V Coach L.C.M. has been remarkable in coaching & encouraging me in attaining my goal so that I can win big for the The V Foundation for Cancer Research
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.
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. Thank you in advance for your genorosity as you are making a difference and saving lives.
