    More information

    ESPN and the late Jim Valvano created The V Foundation in 1993 in
    support of cancer research. Valvano, the legendary North Carolina State
    basketball coach and ESPN broadcaster, won the hearts of sports fans
    across the country when his underdog North Carolina State Wolfpack
    captured the NCAA Basketball Championship in an upset win in 1983.
    Valvano, announced the formation of The Foundation in a moving speech
    delivered at the 1993 ESPY Awards, shortly before his death. "Don't Give
    Up. . .Don't Ever Give Up!" became The Foundation's motivating
    rallying cry. Since then, The Foundation has raised more than $50
    million and awarded hundreds of cancer research grants nationwide. An
    average of 83 cents of every dollar donated to The Foundation is
    allocated directly to research.

    During CITGO Bassmaster Classic Week (Feb. 20-26), an eBay.com auction to benefit The V Foundation will launch. The auction will offer outdoor enthusiasts the chance to bid on specialty items from the outdoors world. The auctions will run for 14 weeks in 2006 in conjunction with weeks when there is an Elite Series or Bassmaster Major tournament. Below is a schedule of events highlighting weeks when the auction will be live. Items for auction include fishing trips, BASS giveaways, BASS angler memorabilia and other items central to the outdoors experience. All net proceeds from the auction will benefit The V Foundation for Cancer Research.
