Each spring, Delta Chis have the opportunity to support the fight against cancer while cheering on their NCAA Division I basketball tournament favorites. The Delta Chi Bracket Challenge (DXBC) is a chance for undergraduates, alumni, and friends of the Fraternity to support the V Foundation for Cancer Research and help the top fundraiser, the top overall bracket, and the top fundraising chapter win some excellent bragging rights and cool prizes.
Get ready for the DXBC 2024, launching next January!
- Top Overall Bracket (Individual who has the most winning bracket): Two Tickets to the 2023 Jimmy V Classic in New York City & two nights of lodging
- Top Overall Fundraiser (Individual who raises the most money through the bracket challenge): Two Tickets to the 2023 Jimmy V Classic in New York City & two nights of lodging
- Top Fundraising Chapter (Chapter that raised the most money through the Bracket Challenge): Delta Chi Bracket Challenge Cup and swag from the V Foundation for Cancer Research
Since 2006, The Delta Chi Fraternity and the V Foundation for Cancer Research have worked together to fight cancer. Recognizing the prevalence of cancer among its own communities and the urgent need for research and cures, Delta Chi has raised more than $2 million for the V Foundation to date.
The V Foundation was founded in 1993 by ESPN and the late Jim Valvano, legendary North Carolina State University men’s basketball coach and ESPN commentator. Valvano’s “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”® spirit is alive now more than ever. With continued support, the V Foundation will continue to accelerate Victory Over Cancer® and save more lives.
