The annual tradition honors the life of military veteran and football player Pat Tillman. He played collegiately at Arizona State University and professionally for the Arizona Cardinals, but heroically left the game to join the Army after the tragic events of September 11, 2001. He was later killed in 2004 in Afghanistan.
Soon after his death, a non-profit organization called the Pat Tillman Foundation was formed. And every year, the foundation holds Pat's Run in his honor to raise money that goes toward scholarships to military members and their families. The Atlanta Run is hosted by the Arizona State University Georgia chapter and all proceeds are donated to the foundation in honor of Pat Tillman and his heroic sacrifice for our country.
There will be an afterparty and silent auction following the run to honor and celebrate Pat's life and legacy. More information to follow.
