The V Foundation
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 those who would battle cancer after him.
In the past 22 years, The V Foundation has awarded more than $130 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.
