Pat Summitt to receive AARP "Inspire Award"

At this year's senior game for the Lady Vols, the AARP will celebrate Pat Summitt's "inspiration".

Since her diagnosis of early onset dementia, she has worked as an advocate for those with Alzheimer's, and created the Pat Summitt Foundation for Alzheimer's research.

This year's senior game is on Sunday against Florida.

At that game, AARP will present the national "Inspire Award" to Coach Summitt.

AARP says Summitt has inspired others through her innovative thinking, passion and perseverance.
