Here are the courageous honorees that will be honored during the ESPYS Awards
The ESPYS are right around the corner, and it was just announced that these unique and gifted individuals will receive awards during the big night.
The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) will receive the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage, Liam Hendriks will receive the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance, and the Buffalo Bills training staff will receive the Pat Tillman Award for Service. Each of these individuals showcased what it's like to go against the grain and overcome adversity.
The ESPYS helps raise awareness and funds for the V Foundation for Cancer Research, the charity founded by ESPN and the late basketball coach Jim Valvano at the first ESPYS in 1993. ESPN has helped raise more than $195 million for the V Foundation over the past 30 years. The ESPYS are co-produced by ESPN and Full Day Productions and will be broadcast July 12 @ 8 pm.
