PRLog - April 3, 2014 - ATLANTA -- On Saturday, April 26th, over 30,000 participants, volunteers and spectators throughout major cities in the United States will unite to run, walk and honor Pat Tillman’s legacy, all while raising important scholarship funds that support Tillman Military Scholars, the military veterans and spouses who reflect Pat's values, strength of character, and commitment to service.
The Pat's Run finish line in Tempe, AZ
Pat's Run in Atlanta is part of a nationwide effort, composed of multiple cities throughout the U.S., that simultaneously participate in Pat’s Run, a 4.2 mile charity-based fun run. Pat’s Run in Atlanta celebrates the legacy of former NFL player, Pat Tillman, who died in April of 2004 while serving with the U.S. Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment in Afghanistan.
Pat’s Run is held annually in late April to commemorate the day that Pat lost his life in Afghanistan. Symbolic of the number 42 that he wore as a Sun Devil football player at Arizona State University, Pat’s Run is 4.2 miles long, in each city where the event is scheduled.
All donations from the Atlanta-based event Charity Run will directly support the Tillman Military Scholars program, which provides scholarships to U.S. military veterans and spouses who reflect Pat’s values, strength of character, and commitment to service.
