On April 13th, 2024, Tempe, Arizona, will host the 20th Annual Pat Tillman Run. This iconic event, which has grown exponentially since its humble beginnings in 2004, is a testament to the enduring impact of Pat Tillman’s life and the values he embodied. 

Read below to discover the meaning behind the run, as well as our involvement this year and how you can support the cause!

What is the Pat Tillman Run

This annual run, in which thousands gather to run or walk a 4.2-mile stretch in Tempe, allows the community to unite and honor Pat Tillman’s memory while supporting the Tillman Scholars program. To learn more about Pat and his story, check out the Pat Tillman Foundation’s website. Along with the run, this foundation also provides educational scholarships to veterans, active-duty service members, and their spouses committed to service in medicine, law, business, policy, technology, education, and the humanities.

A Growing Tradition

Over the past two decades, the Pat Tillman Run has grown from a small, local event to a global phenomenon, attracting nearly 30,000 participants yearly. The run is open to athletes of all ages and abilities, with families, kids, and adults with disabilities all welcome to join in the celebration of Tillman’s life and legacy.

One of the unique aspects of the Pat Tillman Run is the diversity of the participants. From elite runners to casual joggers, from veterans to your average joe, the event brings together people from all walks of life who are united in their admiration for Tillman and desire to support the Tillman Scholars program.

Our Involvement

Peddler’s Son has always been committed to giving back and to supporting our local community. That’s why we’re partnering with Epic’s Produce to sponsor this year’s Pat’s Run. We’ve sourced delicious oranges and bananas from Umina Brothers and Bee Sweet Citrus to keep everyone participating fueled throughout the event. We look forward to coming together with everyone and to supporting an amazing cause! With a fundraiser of this size and mission, we’re very honored to be there.

A Lasting Legacy

As the 20th Annual Pat Tillman Run approaches, it’s essential to reflect on the profound impact that the foundation has had on the world. Through the Tillman Scholars program, Pat’s legacy inspires and empowers individuals committed to making a difference in their communities and beyond.

Whether you’re a seasoned runner or a first-time participant, the Pat Tillman Run is an opportunity to support the community and a great cause. Mark your calendars and join us in Tempe or virtually worldwide on April 13th, 2024, for the 20th annual run.
