KNOXVILLE, TN (News Sentinel) -- Former University of Tennessee football great Peyton Manning added a touching personal note when he signed a giant ceremonial check Thursday for The Pat Summitt Foundation.

"To Pat," he wrote. "Together we will win."

The four-time NFL MVP and current Denver Broncos quarterback's $500,000 gift, made with his wife, Ashley, is the largest to date for the foundation.

He presented the gift to the Lady Vols coach emeritus and her son, Tyler, who co-founded the organization immediately after Summitt told the public in 2011 she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia, Alzheimer's type.
