#Inspiration

Jimmy Valvano was a college basketball coach who won the national title with NC State in 1983.

On March 3, 1993, shortly before his death, he spoke at the first ESPY Awards, presented by ESPN. While accepting the inaugural Arthur Ashe Courage and Humanitarian Award, he announced the creation of The Jimmy V Foundation, an organization dedicated to finding a cure for cancer. He announced that the Foundation’s motto would be “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up.” During his speech the teleprompter stated that he had 30 seconds left, to which Valvano responded, “They got that screen up there flashing 30 seconds, like I care about that screen. I got tumors all over my body and I’m worried about some guy in the back going 30 seconds.”

Jim Valvano died less than two months after his famous ESPY speech and after a year-long battle with cancer.

His tombstone reads: “Take time every day to laugh, to think, to cry.”
