Pat Tillman was a soldier, a student, a friend, a family member and a professional football player who was tragically killed while serving in Afghanistan some 12 years ago. He made quite an impact on the Valley and the nation as a whole. A charitable organization has been created in his honor and they do a 4.2 mile run every year to raise money for scholarships for veterans. It is a truly wonderful cause. Will you be out there?
Register for the 12th Annual Pat’s Run
On April 23rd, join us for the 12th Annual Pat’s Run in Tempe, Arizona or register for one of 30 Shadow Runs nationwide.
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.
Every participant who fundraises or donates $100 minimum by race day will earn the inaugural commemorative Pat’s Run medal. Start fundraising.

Pat’s Run raises money for the Pat Tillman Foundation, which invests in military veterans and their spouses through academic scholarships – building a diverse community of leaders committed to service to others.
Help make this Pat’s Run the most meaningful one to date by starting a fundraiser to support the Tillman Scholars. Every participant who fundraises or donates $100 minimum by race day will earn the inaugural commemorative Pat’s Run medal. We know you may need to recruit a few different donors to reach that goal, and we want you to have the tools you need to educate them about where their money is going.
