Since 2006, the brothers of The Delta Chi Fraternity have dedicated countless hours to their partnership with The V Foundation for Cancer Research. With over 70 chapters involved in fundraising, Delta Chi has raised more than $700,000 for the Foundation. Delta Chi Fraternity’s core values are friendship, character, justice and education – each of which have been exemplified in the brothers’ support of The V Foundation. The V Foundation was founded by ESPN and former award-winning NC State University basketball coach Jim Valvano. Coach Valvano was diagnosed with cancer in 1993. When he created the Foundation, he knew it was too late for research to save him. But he spent his last months creating a legacy of hope for those who would battle cancer after him.
In the past 22 years, The V Foundation has awarded more than $130 million to cancer research and related programs nationwide.
