Run to Remember Pat Tillman, April 13 at the Rose Bowl

Remember Pat Tillman? The football player who quit a promising sports career to join the military and fight for his country, and then got killed?

Well, every year the Pat Tillman Foundation puts on an event to make sure people remember. Pat’s Run takes place at ASU but if you can’t go to Arizona that weekend, you can take part in a variety of Shadow Runs happening all over the place. For us in Southern California, the Shadow Run is NEXT SATURDAY, April 13 at the beautiful Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Saturday, April 13, 2013 – (the website says it’s “on or around April 20th” but once you click “register” it will say the 13th.)

Registration: 8:15 am

Shadow Run/Walk Begins: 9:00 am

Picnic & Presentation: Immediately following

You may run a 4.2 mile course or walk 3 miles around the Rose Bowl, finishing at Brookside Golf Course Club House with a post-race picnic and gathering. This event is open to anyone. They are also partnering with Operation Gratitude to create care packages and write postcards to our servicemen and women.

I’m pretty vocal about how much I hate running, but I would definitely go to this event to walk around the Rose Bowl.

With more than 1,700 Veterans currently enrolled, Arizona State University online is a proud sponsor of the Pat Tillman Foundation Shadow Runs throughout the country. With the legacy of a hero, scholar, and student athlete behind this annual event, ASU online is excited to partner in hosting the run in his memory to encourage participation of military personnel and Vets and families to come out and enjoy the day. There is a 20% discount for military members – just use the code PRS13ASUOM (limited number, first come first served).

There are also 10 discount registration codes for civilians,  20% off the cost of registration for those who register first, either in SD or LA: PRS13MM
