This year I will be participating in Pat's run, a 4.2 mile run through Tempe, AZ in support of the Pat Tillman Foundation (see below). That's right, I, Haley Schmmer (lover of polish food, pizza, and sweets), will be participating in my first real race. I am trying to raise money for a great cause, again see below, and to continue on my 2016 healthy living journey! Any little bit helps future scholars of America and me! All donators will receive a sweaty picture of me after the race, or a copy of my hospital bill, whichever happens first.
Pat’s Run is the signature fundraising event of the Pat Tillman Foundation. Held in late April to commemorate the day Pat lost his life in Afghanistan serving with the 75th Ranger Regiment, Pat’s Run is a 4.2 Mile Run/Walk that winds through the streets of Tempe to Sun Devil Stadium, symbolic of the #42 jersey Pat wore as an ASU Sun Devil. Since 2005, Pat’s Run has grown from a 5,000 person race to honor Pat’s legacy to over 35,000 participants committed to empowering the Tillman Scholars through academic scholarships.
