‘Give for Pat’ and support MEDIC Regional Blood Center

As Seen On WATE

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – MEDIC Regional Blood Center is teaming up with the Pat Summitt Foundation to gather life-saving donations and raise money for Alzheimer’s research.

Pat Summitt Week at MEDIC kicked off Monday morning. Not only was former Lady Vols Coach Pat Summitt a blood donor, she was also an advocate for MEDIC by motivating fans to roll up their sleeves.

This annual event, running through Friday, helps MEDIC collect life-saving blood donations.

For every person who gives back, MEDIC will make a $10 donation to the Pat Summitt Foundation. The nonprofit helps raise money for Alzheimer’s research and care for patients with the disease.
