This will be Matt and Tom's fourth year participating and Renata and Vanessa's first!
Pat’s Run is the signature fundraising event for the Pat Tillman Foundation. Every year it's held in late April to commemorate the day that Pat lost his life in Afghanistan. Symbolic of #42 he wore as an ASU Sun Devil, Pat’s Run is 4.2 miles long, ending on the 42-yard line of Frank Kush Field inside Sun Devil Stadium.
From the first event held in 2005 with nearly 5,000 participants, Pat’s Run has grown into the largest run in the Valley. For the past three years, Pat’s Run has had over 35,000 participants representing all 50 states uniting to Run, Walk and Honor at Sun Devil Stadium with thousands more participating at Shadow Runs nationwide.
Event proceeds directly support Tillman Military Scholars who are studying to become our nation's next leaders in medicine, business, law, education and the arts. They're carrying forward Pat's legacy of service to others. Imagine their impact for our communities, our country and abroad. Every dollar you help raise is not just a donation. It's an investment in our future. Take a moment to learn more about the Tillman Military Scholars here.
Not planning to participate in the race? You can still be a part of this incredible effort by contributing to an existing team (like ours!), donating to an individual runner, or by forming your own fundraising page to honor Pat.
