Summitt Foundation Receives 500K from Mannings

Summitt Foundation Receives 500K from Mannings

Pat Summitt, the legendary former coach of Tennessee who is perhaps the most influential figure in the history of women’s basketball, was sorely missed in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament.

However, her impact is still being felt, and her charity, the Summitt Foundation, may be able to expand its impact after receiving $500k from Peyton Manning and his wife Ashley. 

Manning, a graduate of the University of Tennessee, serves as co-chair of the foundation. The purpose of the foundation is to fight Alzheimer’s. Summitt herself suffers from early onset dementia which led to her retirement.

The donation is the largest the organization has received, and Manning  had previously presented Summitt with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at last summer’s ESPYs.
