MIDTOWN, New York -- The life and legacy of ESPN anchor Stuart Scott was honored Monday night in New York City.
The V Foundation for Cancer Research hosted its third annual "Boo Yah! A Celebration of Stuart Scott" event at the historic Ziegfeld Ballroom in Midtown, bringing together stars, athletes and champions for cancer research.
Boo-Yah! is an annual event aimed at making a significant impact on the racial disparities in cancer outcomes by funding grants through the Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund.
Scott died 8 years ago after battling cancer, but his legacy continues to thrive through Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund.
With ESPN's help, the fund, in partnership with the V Foundation, has awarded over $16 million in grants to support groundbreaking cancer research.
