Legendary Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt and her son, Tyler, have formed The Pat Summitt Foundation. The foundation will fund grants in support of Alzheimer’s research, treatment, and education.

Summit and her son announced the foundation at halftime of the six-ranked Tennesse vs. number 1 ranked Baylor game today. They are currently accepting donations for the foundation at patsummitt.org.

Summit announced in August that she was diagnosed with the early onset of dementia, an Alzheimer’s type of disease, but she said she will continue to coach in order to show others that they can live on with such diseases.

She said in a video message that she wants to “turn this obstacle into a stepping stone leading to a cure.”
