We are proud to be partnered with The V Foundation internationally to raise funds, support, and awareness in the fight for “Victory Over Cancer”.
About The V Foundation
The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded by ESPN and legendary basketball coach Jim Valvano with one goal in mind: to achieve victory over cancer. Since its start in 1993, the V Foundation has awarded over $200 million in cancer research grants nationwide and has grown to become one of the premier supporters of cutting-edge cancer research funds.
WHAT WE DO The V Foundation accelerates breakthroughs in cancer research by funding bold, cutting-edge programs. We carefully seek and vet the best research being performed by the brightest scientists and provide support to increase the probability of success—and ultimately save lives. An endowment funded by generous donors covers administrative costs, allowing the Foundation to direct 100% of all direct cash donations to cancer research.
“Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”
