Hello! This is my first organized walk/run, and I’m pleased to join Starwood Hotels & Resorts, in this deserving fund raiser.
Pat Tillman gave up a multimillion dollar NFL contract with the AZ Cardinals, when joining the United States Army, after the September 11 2001 terrorist attack.
During his tour, on April 22 2004, Pat died from Fratricide (also known as "Friendly Fire") in Afghanistan. In the time since, his wife Marie founded a charity organization in Pat's name. This fundraiser will provide college scholarship awards to Veterans and military families.
04-22-14 will mark the 10th Anniversary of Pat's death. On 04-26-14, the "Pat Tillman Foundation" will hold its 10th Annual "Pat's Run 2014" in Tempe AZ, where Pat played Linebacker for ASU. In honor of his retired jersey #42, this "4.2 mile" run through the streets of Tempe, AZ, and will end on the 42-yard line of Sun Devil Stadium.
Won’t you please honor Pat, and support my walk? Please consider a donation today. I will think of you all during the walk, and walk with pride!
