13th Annual Pat's Run

3TV and CBS 5 are proud to be the new television partners for Pat's Run!

Pat's Run is the signature fundraising event of the Pat Tillman Foundation, which invests in military veterans and their spouses through academic scholarships in honor of the late Pat Tillman, ASU jersey #42. The April 22, 2017 event marks the 13th year this 4.2 mile run/walk will take place.

Pat’s friends and family started Pat’s Run as a way to honor his legacy following his death serving in Afghanistan in 2004. Since 2005, Pat’s Run has grown from 1,000 to 35,000 participants and is now the largest run in the Southwest.

This year, every participant in the run will receive a commemorative medal. Pat’s Run is an event the whole family can get involved in.The event will also include a .42 mile kid run for children 12 and under.

Look for on-air stories about the run and the Tillman Foundation and its mission on both stations, deals on event registration for participants, and live stories and interviews from the event itself! And please visit the 3TV and CBS 5 booths at this year's event.
