The golf tournament developed to honor the late Jim Valvano’s efforts to fight cancer is coming to an end after 20 years. Organizers with The V Foundation announced in a statement that they are giving up the tournament to focus local efforts elsewhere, including a new partnership with the Rock `n’ Roll Raleigh Marathon. The foundation says it is looking for runners to join its charitable team in the marathon, scheduled for April 13. In its 20 years, the golf weekend drew about 500,000 spectators and raised about $13.5 million for cancer research. Foundation spokeswoman Sherrie Mazur said the golf event was run by a staff of three, separate from the foundation. She says it’s unclear if those staffers would remain with the foundation.
