Tillman Honor Runs take place each year in select cities across the country in honor of NFL star, Pat Tillman, who left his professional football career to serve with the 75th Ranger Regiment in Afghanistan and later died during military combat operations in 2004. The funds raised through each Honor Run benefit the Tillman Scholar Program, which includes scholarships, professional development opportunities, and access to a national network of high-performing peers and industry leaders for military veterans and spouses. To date, the organization has invested more than $16 million in academic support and assisted 580 Tillman scholars within their network.
Organized each year by local Daniel Island resident Joel Jackson, the family-friendly, 4.2-mile Charleston walk/run celebrates the military community and legacy of Pat Tillman, while providing residents with an opportunity to come together and enjoy live music, kids activities, food and giveaways.
“We’re hoping to make this year’s Charleston Honor Run the best yet,” Jackson said. “The run is really a celebration of Pat and what he did in his life while also having a fun community event that brings families together. Our goal is to triple our registered runners, which would equate to $40,000 being donated to the Pat Tillman Foundation.”
In recognition of Tillman’s Arizona State jersey number – #42 – the distance for the adult race is 4.2-miles and 0.42-miles for the Kids Run. After the event, participants, families, and friends can enjoy an after-party celebration at Dockery’s on Daniel Island.
Registration is officially open and 100% of ticket sales directly benefit the Pat Tillman Foundation. Tickets are $40 for adults and $10 for kids. Registrants are encouraged to sign up by April 11th to guarantee an event t-shirt. For more information, please visit the Eventbrite page.
