BENEFITING: PAT TILLMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 26, 2014
I deployed to Afghanistan as an artillery platoon leader with the 10th Mountain Division in 2011 and absolutely loved my job.
It is a privilege to take care of Soldiers, and this is the way I can do it now.
After four years of the NYC Marathon, I'm running the Marine Corps Marathon this year. Different city, different challenge, same end goal: raise money so that veterans can attend school.
The Pat Tillman Foundation gives veterans a better future through higher education, and supports those who have a dedication to serving others. The Tillman Military Scholars are making the world a better place.
Please support this important initiative and give what you can.
The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) is an annual marathon held in Arlington, Virginia and Washington, DC. The mission of the MCM is to promote physical fitness, generate community goodwill and showcase the organizational skills of the United States Marine Corps.
The MCM was established in 1976 and is currently the third largest marathon in the United States and the eighth largest in the world. The race field of 30,000 is composed of runners from all 50 states and the District of Columbia and more than 50 countries. The MCM is known as "The People's Marathon" because it is open to all runners ages 14 and above and is the largest marathon that does not offer prize money.
