Long-time SportsCenter anchor, Stuart Scott, passed away Sunday (January 4, 2014) after a seven year fight with cancer. Whether or not you are a fan of ESPN’s sports highlight show (SportsCenter), Scott’s enthusiastic and unique style or a sports fan at all, Stuart’s words during a recent acceptance speech are particularly poignant to all. See below an excerpt from his speech directly on point with Motivating Miles’ mission.


“When you die, that does not mean you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live. So live. Live. Fight like hell. And when you get too tired, lie down, rest and let someone else fight for you. This whole fight, this journey, is not a solo venture. This is something that requires support.”
