BENEFITING: The V Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I was debating on running the marathon again this year but then found out an old college buddy was going to run it. That was enough motivation for me! And only one charity came to mind...Jimmy V. After meeting some incredible people in the foundation and seeing that 100% of the money goes to cancer research, it wasn't even a question.
I would be honored if you would join me in 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.
