Delta Chi & The V Foundation for Cancer Research
“The V Foundation, named in honor of former basketball coach and cancer victim Jim Valvano, was chosen because of its dedication to saving lives by helping to find a cure for cancer. Because The V Foundation sponsors research and treatments for all forms of cancer, a disease with which almost everyone has a personal connection, a personal relationship will be established with The V Foundation.
"Delta Chi is excited and honored to be working with The V Foundation," said Steve Bossart, "AA" (International President) of the Fraternity. "Cancer has had an effect on every person's life in some way. This partnership allows Delta Chi to help lead the fight against cancer."
From 1998 to 2006, Delta Chi chapters and colonies had contributed more than 223,000 man-hours to community service and have raised more than $1 million for charitable organizations. Its partnership with The V Foundation will allow Delta Chi to focus those efforts towards benefiting a single cause and organization.”
In addition to our annual basketball championship to benefit The V Foundation, our fraternity volunteers for the Monument Avenue 10k and street cleaning initiatives on campus. Giving back to the city of Richmond is a top priority for our organization because we appreciate the support the community has given to us.
