Quote:
To honor his legacy, his wife Kelci created the Korey Stringer Institute, a foundation that works to inform others about ways to prevent exertional heat stroke.

“Every year, some unfortunate young athlete is dying due to the heat,” Kelci Stringer said. “So I said to myself, ‘Somebody has to do something.’ ”

This ^ is a noble cause because there doesn't seem to be enough info on this serious problem.

The name of the institute makes sense, but it may not have as much impact in the future because many people have already forgotten about Stringer's death, and many do not know him at all.

The sensible thing to do is change the name to add a description of the issue they are addressing; e.g. 'The Stringer Heat Stroke Research Institute' or 'The Stringer Sports Illness Research Institute'.
