The Alumni Challenge 5K – Benefiting The V Foundation Victory Over Cancer

November 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Legendary Sports Group in partnership with the V Foundation has developed the Alumni Challenge race series that will take place in various cities across the country. The inaugural race will take place in Washington, DC and will look to capitalize on the large number of alumni support groups in the region.   Participants are encouraged to represent their school during the run (apparel, flags, mascots, etc.).  Participants will compete individually and as a school to raise the most money for the V Foundation and winners will be recognized with the Alumni Challenge Trophy and recognized by the V Foundation.

V Foundation Victory Over Cancer

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 $225 million in cancer research grants nationwide and has grown to become one of the premier supporters of cutting-edge cancer research. Due to generous donors, the Foundation has an endowment that covers administrative expenses. The V Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to saving lives by helping to find a cure for cancer. The V Foundation seeks to make a difference by generating broad-based support for cancer research and by creating an urgent awareness among all Americans of the importance of the war against cancer. The V Foundation performs these dual roles through advocacy, education, fundraising and philanthropy. Check out https://www.v.org/home for more information.
