During the month of January, schools across the country host We Back Pat games to honor the legendary coach Pat Summitt while raising awareness for those battling Alzheimer’s disease. We are excited to now have an opportunity for officials to also participate in this worthy cause. In the month of January, officials may use purple Fox 40 Classic whistles while donning a We Back Pat patch on the left chest of the pregame jacket.
All proceeds from these packages go to the Pat Summitt Foundation and continuing Coach
Pat Summitt’s mission to advance research for treatment and a cure, provide care and support for patients and caregivers, and educate the public on Alzheimer’s disease. Since it’s inception, the Pat Summitt Foundation has awarded over $3 million in grants to nonprofit organizations across the southeast region working in these areas.
