BENEFITING: PAT TILLMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
Pat never stopped pushing the limits as an athlete, and neither will I.
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.
I am running this race to honor his legacy, provide others with an opportunity and to show the ones who have made the ultimate sacrifice that their lives are to be celebrated.
