Lawson co-chair for Summitt Foundation

Pilot Corporation founder Jim Haslam II will chair the Pat Summitt Foundation's advisory board. Haslam is the father of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Browns owner Jimmy Haslam.

The foundation also announced Tuesday that Kara Lawson of the WNBA's Connecticut Sun and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will serve as honorary co-chairs. Lawson played for Summitt at Tennessee from 1999-2003. Manning starred at Tennessee from 1994-97 and was the Heisman Trophy runner-up his senior year.

The Pat Summitt Foundation was established in November 2011 to advance research for the prevention and cure of Alzheimer's disease.
