“Dick Vitale sets the bar high — which he should,” former pro basketball player and current collegiate basketball analyst Jerod Ward said. “He really reaches out to the community in sports and the community here in Sarasota. The community does a great job of coming out and responding. If we can continue to raise awareness and raise money for cancer — and especially pediatric cancer — then that’s a plus.”
