Welcome to V Foundation Blog

Welcome to our first V Foundation blog entry. We are excited to join this exciting communication forum and share upcoming V News with you all.

My brother Jim was not only a world-class coach, but he was also brave in his fight against cancer, which ultimately took his life.  Through his inspiration, with the support of ESPN, The V Foundation was founded.  Jim would be so proud knowing the accomplishments that The V Foundation has made through our 16 years.

From raising more than $80 million to fund leading-edge cancer research projects to having a Twitter account to keep in touch, we’re making a difference in the fight against cancer by increasing awareness and funding projects.

Our blog will keep you up to speed with Foundation news, cancer research breakthroughs, upcoming events and fundraisers, and much more.  In addition, we hope that you’ll visit the blog to share your comments, suggestions, and recommendations.  Your contributions are important to us.

Thank you for taking the time to support The V Foundation.  Without your support, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

Nick Valvano,

CEO, The V Foundation
