Funds will go to the Heimerdinger Foundation, started by his family to honor the coach and raise awareness of cancer treatment options and healthier lifestyles.

Heimerdinger was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer November 2010 while working as the Titans' offensive coordinator. He died in September 2011.
