Corona is stepping up again this year to work with the Jimmy V Foundation to help find a cure for cancer by donating proceeds for every Corona sold from now until April 3rd.
You can learn about the V foundation here: https://www.jimmyv.org
Here’s an excerpt about what they do;
“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 start in 1993, the V Foundation has awarded over $170 million in cancer research grants nationwide and has grown to become one of the premier supporters of cutting-edge cancer research funds.”
And their Mission;
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.
Our vision is to fund extraordinary cancer research to save more lives every day.
In addition to grants and small donations, the foundation’s operations are completely funded by a generous endowment, meaning that 100% of cash donations go straight to cancer research. This means more studies and less red tape.
