“While we can’t come together to take to the streets of Tempe this April, we’re still one community focused on one mission: uniting and empowering remarkable service members, veterans and military spouses to carry on Pat Tillman’s legacy,” said Dan Futrell, CEO and 2011 Tillman Scholar.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) January 13, 2021
Registration opened for Pat’s Run, the Pat Tillman Foundation’s marquee fundraising event, presented by TEKsystems. Pat’s Run, a 4.2 mile run / walk with a .42 mile Kids Run, will take place virtually on April 24, 2021.
In partnership with the City of Tempe, Arizona State University and TEKsystems, the Pat Tillman Foundation made a joint decision to hold Pat’s Run virtually in 2021 to prioritize the health and safety of our runners, our volunteers and the community.
“While we can’t come together to take to the streets of Tempe this April, we’re still one community focused on one mission: uniting and empowering remarkable service members, veterans and military spouses to carry on Pat Tillman’s legacy,” said Dan Futrell, CEO and 2011 Tillman Scholar. “You can share Pat’s values and help support our nearly 700 Tillman Scholars by not just walking and running in your community, but asking your friends and neighbors to join you, no matter where they live.”
Registration costs $42 for the 4.2 mile walk / run. Funds raised benefit the Pat Tillman Foundation and the Tillman Scholars program. Arizona State University alumni can also register for socially distanced Tillman Honor Runs in 13 cities across the country.
All adult registrants for the 4.2 mile walk / run will receive a medal and a sport-tech race tee featuring the 2021 theme, “Give ‘Em Hell,” a line from the ASU fight song that Pat famously uttered to his teammates before beating defending national champions Nebraska 19-0 in 1996. Kids’ race participants will receive a special kids sport-tech shirt and a ribbon.
Registrants can also sign up for special bundles for our new Pat’s Run Challenge Series, including a virtual 10K in August and the Pat’s Run 42 in 40 Challenge, in which participants hike, run or walk 42 miles in the 40 days before Veterans Day. Registrants for each event will receive a t-shirt and medal and those who complete all three will receive a special item.
