Honoring #42 from Chicago to Kabul

Dear Sean,

Watch  the recap video now19 of us turned out in Philadelphia. 26 in Austin. 185 in Tempe. And dozens as far away as Camp Eggers in Afghanistan.

Together, we ran over 1,600 miles to honor former NFL player Pat Tillman's legacy of courage and sacrifice.

This past Saturday, hundreds of IAVA Member Veterans in 14 cities nationwide and Camp Eggers, Afghanistan raced in Pat's Run Shadow Runs sponsored by the ASU Alumni Association and the Pat Tillman Foundation.

Over 20,000 people attended the race in Tempe this year and Team IAVA, with over 150 runners, won the award for the largest military team in attendance, as well as the award for 3rd fastest team overall. It was an incredible day of unity and fun. And thanks to your support in our first Pat's Run 'Super Fan' competition, hundreds of fans from San Francisco to Huntsville turned out to cheer us on.

Thank you for your continued support.
