Jimmy V Week


Jimmy V Week

next week, ESPN kicks off its annual Jimmy V Week, in honor of the V Foundation for Cancer Research, the organization named after former NC State coaching legend Jimmy Valvano

Coach V lost his life to a battle with cancer on April 28, 1993 at age 47

his legacy lives on through the V Foundation, ESPN and its bigger supporter and advocate, Dick Vitale

ESPN runs the Jimmy V Week every year with a mini-tournament at MSG and raises money for the V Foundation and cancer research as a whole

i think this is a really good time to give any money you can to the V Foundation, or at least support them in any way you can… we can beat cancer eventually and we will

my life has been touch by cancer… i have lost 3 very close family friends to the enemy…

in the famous words of Jimmy V, himself, at the 1993 ESPY awards

"Don't give up. Don't ever give up!"
