Jimmy V Week on ESPN

One of the great things about the sports industry is how much everyone embraces the community and supports so many wonderful, charitable organizations. I want to take a second to help promote one of them.

If you visit ESPN.com, you will see that it is Jimmy V Week. I’m sure most of you know the story of Jim Valvano, his fight against cancer and his emotional speech at the 1993 ESPYs – “Don’t give up…don’t ever give up.” When times are tough financially, charities tend to suffer, but every dollar can help.

If you have a chance, I’d encourage you to contribute by clicking here, even if its only a couple of dollars. It is a great organization with a great focus to support cancer research. If you need some motivation, take a few minutes and watch Jimmy’s speech. It is incredibly moving and inspirational. All of us have had friends or family touched by cancer, so let’s try to help do something about it together. Thanks.
