JIMMY V DONATIONS
Retro College Cuts is proud to support the best and most well known charity in college basketball, the Jimmy V Foundation.
Retro College Cuts will donate one dollar for every garment purchased online to The V Foundation, to support cancer research.
The V Foundation has raised more than $100 million and awarded cancer research grants in 38 states and the District of Columbia. Researchers have developed their laboratories and taken their science from the labs to the clinics with the help of funds raised by The V Foundation.
The V Foundation started with the dream of Jim Valvano, the passionate and committed former NC State basketball coach and award-winning broadcaster, as he battled cancer. Wanting to see the battle through to victory, Valvano recruited friends and family to lead The V Foundation in his quest to eradicate the disease that ultimately claimed his life. With a dire need for early developmental, critical-stage grant support, the Foundation was formed to assist the brilliant young researchers that will eventually find cures for cancer.
If you haven’t seen Jim Valvano’s stirring speech at the 1993 ESPY Awards, take a few minutes out of your day to understand why we are proud to support such a tremendous charity.
“Don’t give up…don’t ever give up.” – Jimmy Valvano
