“Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.” – Jim Valvano
Have you seen the video of Jimmy V’s 1993 ESPY speech? It’s right up there with some of the most moving speeches in mankind’s history.
The V Foundation for Cancer Research was started in 1993 to honor Jim Valvano. From very humble beginnings of Jim’s personal friends and family, The Foundation grew. Today, that circle of friends has expanded and the support structure of The Foundation includes people of all walks of life, those who knew Jim personally, those who knew of Jim and many who have joined the cause simply because they believe in the possibility of Jim’s final wish – to fund research to find cures for cancer.
The V Foundation takes great pride in its fiscal responsibility and is proud to announce that it gives 100 percent of all new direct cash donations to cancer research and related programs.
