ESPN’s Jimmy V Week For Cancer Research

“Don’t give up, don’t ever give up.” – Jimmy V

If you’ve been watching ESPN during the last few days, you’ve probably noticed that it’s Jimmy V Week For Cancer Research.

Just who was Jimmy V and what is the Jimmy V Foundation? 

Jimmy V was a dynamic men’s basketball coach. In 1983, his NC State team shocked the basketball world (and the University of Houston) by winning the NCAA Men’s Championship. Most people don’t remember Jimmy V for his coaching, but for his 1993 ESPY award speech when he inspired the audience to support cancer research.

Today, there are 28 million cancer survivors around the world. The Jimmy V Foundations strives each and everyday to raise money and find a cure for cancer. Donating is easy and every little bit helps. Visit www.JimmyV.org
