Robin Roberts to Receive Courage Award at 2013 ESPYs

March 27, 2013

The Good Morning America co-anchor will receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2013 ESPYs in July, ESPN confirmed yesterday.

The ex-SportsCenter anchor will be recognized for fighting against both breast cancer and the unusual blood disorder that prompted her to undergo a bone marrow transplant in September.

"Those qualities made her an incredible asset during her time here at ESPN, and they have served her well as she battled the terrible health challenges that she's had to face."
