Pat Tillman Foundation/Arizona State University Alumni Association Georgia Chapter Shadow Run

Saturday in Tempe Arizona the 8th annual Pat's Run was ran by 28,000 people to honor the memory of Pat Tillman, and to raise money for the Pat Tillman Foundation. The Pat Tillman Foundation raises money for scholarships that are given to Military Members and Spouses. To date they have raised and given over $2.2 million dollars in scholarships to military members and spouses around the country. 

Since it is a long way from Georgia to Arizona the local ASU Alumni group put on a Shadow Run in Dacula, GA. We ran/walked the 2.2 mile trail (twice) at Little Mulberry Park, in memory of Pat.

 The guy in gold? He is one of the Tillman Military Scholars. I wish I had gotten his name!

After the run. :-) I did the 4.2 miles in about 58 minutes. My goal for next year's Shadow Run, is to actually be able to run it. :-)
