When we hear about a soldier or sailor or marine being killed in action, we hear it on the news or read it in the pager and we move on. Many of us move on because it is not our family that has been affected. But for those families who lost a loved one in the military, they cannot move on so fast. When I see these runs, I feel compelled to run, walk, or volunteer because its my way of giving back. They sacrificed everything for our freedoms we enjoy today. The least I can do, to show my support, my respect, and my sympathies, is to honor their memory by participating in an event that is in their honor. I hope you will help me reach my goal for the Pat Tillman Foundation. What Pat's Run comes down to, this and every year, is honoring Pat's legacy by raising scholarship funds for the Tillman Scholars. These incredible military veterans and their spouses are continuing their service in the fields of medicine, business, law and beyond - and your support is crucial to their success. I thank you for donating to this great organization. I thank you also for your support.
