Legendary Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt has announced she will take a more advisory role with the team she built next season. 
It was a move that was not unexpected after her diagnosis with early-onset dementia, Alzheimers type, last year. 

But while she's stepping back a bit from that job, she continues to lead the fight against a disease that thousands are battling.

At Saturday's Alzheimers Walk in Knoxville, she served as honorary co-chair with former Vols football coach Phillip Fulmer.  She gave an inspiring speech to the crowd that was gathered for the walk.  The video of that speech is attached to this story.
