I’m proud to run the Chicago Marathon for the Pat Tillman Foundation.
As a journalist, some of the most memorable stories I’ve reported have been about veterans, the sacrifices they’ve made, and the often often difficult journeys they’ve begun after coming home. The Tillman Foundation invests in veterans, and their families, through education.
A few of the veteran-related stories I’ve written:
’Strengthening Homecoming’s Safety Net’
Skiing lifts Aspen’s Joel Hunt to Paralympic heights’
The Tillman Military Scholars program supports our nation’s active and veteran servicemembers and their spouses by removing financial barriers to completing a degree program of choice. The scholarship funds cover not only direct study-related expenses such as tuition and fees, but also other needs, including housing and child care. Since the program’s inception, the Pat Tillman Foundation has invested over $3.2 million in financial support to 230 Scholars. These scholarship funds are just a portion of the Tillman Military Scholar experience which also focuses on guiding an engaged community and providing essential resources that empower Scholars to serve and lead in their local communities and ease the transition from military to civilian life. Donations to my fundraising run will support these scholars.
