BENEFITING: PAT TILLMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
As a Veteran of the US Navy and now a VA Psychologist, I work each day to continue to serve those who served, and I see the good that is being done to help. On October 8, I will have the honor of running the Chicago Marathon to benefit the Pat Tillman foundation.
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.
Please consider supporting me in my endeavor to help our Veterans take that next step toward a brighter future, by investing in them, and watch me race to success in Chicago on October 8!
