Nearly 30,000 members of the community, including a team organized by the Pat Tillman Veterans Center, gathered at the 14th Annual Pat's Run on Saturday, April 21, 2018, to honor Pat Tillman's life and legacy. Read more about the run and see additional photos from last year's event.
Sponsored by the Pat Tillman Foundation, Pat’s Run was created to honor the life and legacy of ASU alumnus Pat Tillman who lost his life while serving with the 75th Ranger Regiment in Afghanistan. While a member of the ASU football team, Tillman proudly wore the number 42 football jersey.
The 4.2 mile run and .42 kids run attract more than 30,000 people each year. Proceeds directly benefit the Tillman Military Scholars, a program designed to support educational opportunities for servicemembers and military families by bridging the financial gaps left by the Post-9/11 GI Bill®.
The 4.2 mile course winds through the streets of Tempe and is staged so that all participants finish on the 42-yard line on Frank Kush Field inside Sun Devil Stadium.
In addition to the main run, chapters from the ASU Alumni Association participate in shadow runs across the United States. The shadow runs are community-oriented, casual affairs, commonly held at parks, schools and recreation areas.
"GI Bill®" is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website at www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
Arizona State University’s Pat Tillman Veterans Center coordinates Team 42, members of the ASU veteran community who first participated in Pat’s Run on April 22, 2017. Members of Team 42 run in honor of an individual who reminds them of the spirit of Pat Tillman.
