Titans, Rams Coaches Helping Heimerdinger Charity

CREATED May 26, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee coach Ken Whisenhunt is joining a group of fellow NFL coaches and players helping raise money for the foundation named in honor of the late Mike Heimerdinger.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher and former NFL coach Mike Shanahan are among those taking part in the third annual Drive 4 Dinger Celebrity golf tournament with a kickoff dinner and auction June 6. The golf tournament is June 7 at Gaylord Springs Golf Links.

This event is the key fundraiser for the foundation named for Heimerdinger, who died of cancer in 2011. The foundation operates Meals2Heal delivering food to people undergoing cancer treatment, and Kathie Heimerdinger says they served more than 4,512 meals after raising $89,000 last year. Their goal is $120,000 with a growing demand for the meals.
