Summitt PSA to air on Regal screens

Every Regal Entertainment Group movie screen throughout the country will air a 30-second public service announcement about Alzheimer’s disease during this month. The PSA will include UT basketball legend Pat Summitt as well Kara Lawson, honorary co-chair on her Foundation’s advisory board, and some guy named Peyton Manning.

“We are tremendously grateful to Regal Entertainment Group for this significant and very generous contribution that will further the work of the Pat Summitt Foundation on a national level,” said Summitt in a released statement.

The PSA is designed to raise “significant awareness” about the disease and “the critical need for research funds to find a cure,” noted Greg Dunn, president and COO of Regal in a released statement.

“Pat’s efforts are a source of encouragement and support to the 5.5 million Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers in America,” he added.
