The 18th Annual Pat’s Run — a 4.2-mile run/walk celebrating the legacy of former NFL player, Sun Devil and Army Ranger Pat Tillman — returned to Sun Devil Stadium on April 23 after two years of virtual running due to the pandemic.
Thousands of people came together Saturday morning to honor Tillman’s legacy and raise funds to support the Pat Tillman Foundation’s Tillman Scholar program.
Tillman, who played ASU football in college, was playing for the NFL when the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks occurred. He gave up his football career to join the U.S. Army, and was killed by friendly fire while serving in Afghanistan.
The route took runners from Sun Devil Stadium through the streets of Tempe, back to the finish line at Sun Devil Stadium.
