I have admired Pat Tillman for years. He is an American Hero who passed on a multi-million dollar NFL contract to enter the Army and fight for his country after 911. In the end, he gave his life to the cause he cared so deeply for. I am so inspired by this man that I registered for his fundraising running event on April 21, 2018 in Tempe Arizona - where he played college football at Arizona St. This is not about the length of the race or me personally. It is about the Pat Tillman Foundation and their efforts to provide support to military families.
I am hoping to receive donations of $10 from friends who are interested. Thank you for your consideration!
