On March 4, 1993, former NC State men’s basketball coach Jim Valvano was presented the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage at the inaugural ESPY Awards. During his acceptance of the award, Jimmy V gave what has become one of the most enduring speeches in sports history, which “brought a howling, teary-eyed Madison Square Garden to its feet”. Valvano would succumb to cancer less than two months later.
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 formation in 1993, the V Foundation has awarded over $310 million in cancer research grants nationwide and has grown to become one of the premier supporters of cutting-edge cancer research.
Wolfpack Outfitters is proud to partner with the V Foundation, Hanes Brands and Alternative Apparel on the launch of the 30th Anniversary Collection. A portion of the proceeds from your purchase of 30th Anniversary Collection apparel will support cancer research through the V Foundation.
