Anyone who donates blood at MEDIC Regional Blood Center from Feb. 3 to Feb. 7 will also be helping The Pat Summitt Foundation.

MEDIC will make a $10 donation to The Pat Summitt Foundation for every donor who donates blood. It will help the foundation fund organizations engaged in patient care, caregiver support and Alzheimer’s disease clinical research.

"Not only was former Lady Vol Coach Pat Summitt a blood donor, she was an advocate for MEDIC Regional Blood Center and the community blood supply," MEDIC said in its release. "On countless occasions she worked to promote MEDIC’s mission and motivated her fans to roll up their sleeves."

The blood center set a goal of 1,500 donors.

"As a way to say thank you and to recognize Coach Summitt for her accomplishments, MEDIC is asking its blood donors to 'Give for Pat.'"
