ESPN RADIO held a live auction on JULY 17th after an online auction JULY 7-17.
“The ESPN Radiothon is a fun-filled and lively way to raise awareness about cancer and to raise funds to defeat it,” said SUSAN BRAUN, CEO of THE V FOUNDATION. “This year, our wonderful colleagues at ESPN raised more than $781,000, all of which directly comes to THE V FOUNDATION. Each donation funds cutting edge cancer research aimed at putting an end to cancer. Our unending thanks to everyone at ESPN RADIO and to each listener who pledged, who jumped in to help. YOU made this happen!”
