Tennessee Athletics and The University of Tennessee Medical Center will honor the legacy of the late legendary coach Pat Summitt with a special commemorative cup available for purchase at concessions stands benefitting Alzheimer’s research on Saturday when the Volunteers welcome UConn for Homecoming in Neyland Stadium.

November is Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, and a $1 of every Summitt cup sold throughout Neyland Stadium on Saturday will go directly to support Alzheimer’s research at The University of Tennessee Medical Center.

There are over 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s Disease with 3 million new cases diagnosed each year. Fans are encouraged to share their Volunteer spirit in supporting Alzheimer’s research at The UT Medical Center via a donation at
