Peyton Manning’s great work isn’t done just because it’s April. He and his wife, Ashley, have reportedly donated $500,000 to the Pat Summitt Foundation. The foundation was started by former University of Tennesse women’s basketball coach, Pat Summitt, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.
The Manning’s gift will go toward supporting Alzheimer’s patients and their families and caretakers. It will also go toward awareness, education, and research efforts.
Manning attended the University of Tennessee where he completed his degree in three years as a communications and business major. He became lifelong friends with Summitt in the process, who coached at the university from 1974 to 2012.
Additionally, Manning is a member of the Pat Summitt Foundation advisory board.
