Riding for a cure with the V Foundation

Today’s Man Up to Cancer Podcast is all about The V Foundation

Founded by legendary basketball coach Jimmy Valvano, the V Foundation is one of the largest fundraising organizations in the world for cancer research, having awarded more than $250 million in research grants since its inception in 1993.

In August, the V Foundation is hosting the annual Victory Ride for a Cure. Take part in virtual cycling and non-cycling events throughout the month. You can also join fellow riders in person on Aug. 28 in Raleigh, N.C. Choose from 10-, 30-, 60-, or 100-mile routes. 

I had the honor of interviewing Tom Vibert. He is a stage 4 colorectal cancer survivor; an avid cyclist; and a major fundraiser for the Victory Ride. We are joined by Mick McDonald, a communications staffer for the V Foundation, and host of the Voices of Victory Podcast.

About the Podcast

Man Up to Cancer
The show built for men facing cancer, and the people who love us!
I'm your host, Trevor Maxwell. I'm a stage IV colon cancer survivor, and I've got a message for other men: You don't have to go through cancer alone.

Every week on the Man Up to Cancer podcast, you can expect raw, unfiltered conversations about men, cancer, and our experiences. My guests will be other patients, survivors, advocates, and friends from #cancerland.

We'll tackle the topics of grief, pain, and the physical suck-fest of cancer. But .. PLOT TWIST.. we're also going to joke, laugh, and have fun.
