Paterno Foundation Ready To “Make an Impact”

Joe Paterno was such a man that even after his passing he will continue his life mission to “make an impact” with the founding of the Paterno Foundation. More details and information will be released in the coming weeks as the foundation is still in its early stages.

The family announced the start of the Paterno Foundation last Friday along with the announcement of the “Memorial for Joe” DVD. The DVD of the January 26th memorial service, which will be released in the coming weeks will cost $19.95 and all proceeds from its sales will be donated to the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania. You can pre-order the DVD from the foundation’s website.

It is now up to the Penn State community to help spread Joe’s philosophy to “make an impact.” Diana Paterno Giegerich, in a video on the foundation’s website said that “In the following weeks and months, we will provide you with an opportunity to get involved so together we can continue Joe Paterno’s work.” And with such a massive amount of dedicated followers of Paterno, I’m sure the foundation will be nothing short of a success in its goal.
