“Don’t give up… Don’t ever give up!”

Jim Valvano announced the beginning of the V Foundation for Cancer Research during his unforgettable speech at the ESPYS on March 4, 1993.

His message was simple: Cancer research needs our support.

Jim passed shortly after his speech, but his words still inspire many and provide all of us motivation to never give up.
