BENEFITING: PAT TILLMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
I’m honored to have been accepted to join the Pat Tillman Foundation’s “Team Tillman” fundraising campaign for the 40th Annual Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 8th, 2017!
Having served in the Army for over 20 years, I am very excited to be a part of this great organization's fundraising campaign! So thank you in advance for the Clicking the Yellow DONATE button and helping me raise money for the Pat Tillman Foundation.
Every year the foundation receives thousands of applications from military veterans and their spouses nationwide. Up to 60 of the best-poised leaders, who show strength in character, academic excellence and incredible potential, are chosen as Tillman Scholars. They are individuals who will apply the best lessons they’ve learned in life and the military to impact our country for years to come in medicine, business, law, science, education and the arts.
Many of you are familiar with Pat Tillman's story.
In 2002, Pat Tillman proudly put his NFL career with the Arizona Cardinals on hold to serve his country. Family and friends established the Pat Tillman Foundation following Pat’s death in April 2004 while serving with the 75th Ranger Regiment in Afghanistan.
Created to honor Pat’s legacy of leadership and service, the Pat Tillman Foundation invests in military veterans and their spouses through academic scholarships–building a diverse community of leaders committed to service to others. To date, nearly $1 million has been raised to fund scholarships for Tillman Scholars, who share Pat’s commitment to service, learning and action.
