Team Tillman is a fundraising program designed for everyday athletes who identify with the values exhibited by Pat Tillman and want to help carry forward his legacy of leadership and service. By selecting the Pat Tillman Foundation as beneficiary of your fundraising and training efforts, your hard work enables us to carry forward Pat’s legacy and fulfill our mission.
In return for raising funds to support the Foundation's scholarship programs, Team Tillman: National members can earn exclusive Team Tillman gear and special gifts. There is no minimum fundraising level set, but we do encourage members to reach a minimum of $500.
If there is a race that PTF is not a charity partner of that you would like to participate in and fundraise, Team Tillman: National is for you.Team Tillman: National members can participate as a team or individually in marathons, half-marathons, triathlons, cycling, athletic and non-athletic events, and tributes to honor Pat. To date, we have raised nearly $1.2 million to fund scholarships for the Tillman Scholars, who all share Pat’s commitment to service, learning and action.
The Pat Tillman Foundation will work closely with our team members to ensure their success and enjoyment throughout this process. We work very closely with Crowdrise, which specializes in peer to peer fundraising. Each runner/team/organization will create their own fundraising page that they will then use as their primary fundraising source. We also will send out fundraising ideas as well as monthly emails including such elements as Tillman Scholar featurettes, Foundation news, race and fundraising updates.
