Robin Roberts Receives Arthur Ashe Courage Award at ESPYs

by at . Comments

Robin Roberts received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2013 ESPYs last night, and it's hard to think of anyone more deserving of the honor.

Watch her emotional speech after winning the honor below:

Two decades ago, Jim Valvano made his legendary acceptance speech after winning it, setting the stage for the best part of the ESPY Awards.

Fittingly, the late college basketball coach's great efforts raising cancer awareness helped impact so many lives, including this year's recipient, Roberts.

Robin, who survived breast cancer in 2008 and MDS (a rare blood and bone marrow disease) recently, is courageous, as well as talented and inspiring.

Here's hoping she continues to be for many years to come.
