Congratulations to the participants of the 8th annual Pat Tillman run in Tempe, Arizona honoring former Arizona State University and Arizona Cardinal standout Pat Tillman.  Tillman was killed in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004 by friendly fire and his death was covered up in cowardly fashion by the country and government that he so unselfishly served.

Be Inspired. Give Back. Run | Walk | Honor Pat’s Run is the signature fundraising event for the Pat Tillman Foundation. Held annually in April at Arizona State University’s Sun Devil Stadium, the event attracts more than 35,000 participants, volunteers and spectators from across the country. Together they Run, Walk and Honor Pat’s legacy while raising important funds to support the programs created to pay tribute to his commitment to leadership and service. Pat’s Run features a 4.2 mile run/walk, a .42 mile Kids Run for children 12 and under and a Finish Line Expo. The 4.2 mile course winds through the streets of Tempe and both events are staged so that all participants finish on the 42-yard line on Frank Kush Field inside Sun Devil Stadium, symbolic of the #42 jersey that Pat wore while he was a Sun Devil. Proceeds from Pat’s Run directly support the Tillman Military Scholars program.

Until Next Time,
