Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt is starting a foundation to aid in both the care and research for Alzheimer’s disease.
The announcement of the Pat Summitt Foundation Fund will be made at halftime of Sunday’s game against No. 1 Baylor at Thompson-Boling Arena.
Summitt announced in August that she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type.
The fund will make grants to nonprofit organizations that provide education and awareness, support services and research related to Alzheimer’s.
Danielle Donehew, a former Lady Vols director of basketball operations, will be an administrator for the fund.
