Pat never stopped pushing the limits as an athlete.
Told he was too small to ever play football, he defied skeptics, first as an All-American ASU Sun Devil and then, as a record-breaking safety for the Arizona Cardinals. Even in the off-season, he never quit challenging himself at marathons and half-Ironman triathlons nationwide.
Today, Team Tillman is keeping Pat’s passion and intensity alive while inspiring others to live up to their potential. A community of everyday athletes, civilian and military, we participate as a team or individually in marathons, half-marathons, triathlons, cycling and other athletic events to honor Pat. To date, we have raised nearly $1 million to fund scholarships for Tillman Scholars, who share Pat’s commitment to service, learning and action.
I'm challenging myself. I've joined Team Tillman to run the 2017 Chicago Marathon and raise funds for the Pat Tillman Foundation. 26.2 miles to prove to myself I can do it and the opportunity to give back to our service men and women. Being a military veteran myself, I understand the sacrifices that come with military service. We owe a lot to these men and women and by taking on this challenge, I am able to show some of that gratitude. Will you join me by supporting me in my fundraising efforts? We both can make a difference!
