Over 35,000 runners, walkers, volunteers and spectators united at Sun Devil Stadium on Saturday, April 20 to Run, Walk and Honor Pat’s legacy of leadership and service. All 50 states were represented and amongst the crowd were 40 Tillman Military Scholars and their families in special gold Pat’s Run race shirts. People from a few months old to 86 years of age were in attendance to celebrate Pat’s legacy. Thousands of supporters also turned out in full force at over 28 Shadow Runs in cities across the country as well as two Troop Runs in Afghanistan this April.

Over 2,600 kids participated in the .42 mile Kids Run and four of those youngsters were named Tillman. But, none of this would have been possible without the 1,200 volunteers who helped with Race Week and Race Day responsibilities. We’d also like to give a special shout out to the 200 Team Tillman members who raised over $77,000 during Pat’s Run.
On behalf of the Pat Tillman Foundation, the Pat’s Run Race Committee and the community of Tillman Military Scholars that directly benefits from your support of Pat’s Run – THANK YOU for being with us every step of the way!
At the Pat Tillman Foundation we cannot fulfill our mission without the generosity of individuals and sponsors like you – who share Pat’s passion and desire to make a difference. Thank you again for your participation and continued support of Pat’s Run and all of our Tillman Military Scholars nationwide.
