KNOXVILLE (WATE) – MEDIC Regional Blood Center is hosting a blood drive in support of The Pat Summitt Foundation.

The legendary basketball coach was a regular blood donor and supported MEDIC’s mission. The organization is saying thank you to Summitt by asking donors to “Give for Pat”

The blood drive will be from January 30 to February 3. Alumni Hall will be making a $10 donation every time someone donates blood. MEDIC’s goal is to have 1,500 donors.

Donors will receive a t-shirt, a free appetizer from Texas Roadhouse, a free cinnamon biscuit from Bojangles and a coupon for the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.

Donors are asked to post a photo on social media with the hashtag “#GiveForPat” in order to encourage more people to donate.
