PLI Community Connection Supports Pat Tillman Foundation Run
Art Rodriguez represented Phoenix Logistics (PLI) in the Pat Tillman Foundation Run and succesfully completed the 4.2 mile course in 39.47 minutes. Art was motivated to join the run in support of his brother and friends who have served in Iraq. Art was happy to also be able to present the Pat Tillman Foundation with a $140 donation from the Phoenix Logistics Community Connection Program.
The Pat Tillman Foundation is a national leader in providing resources and educational support to veterans, active servicemembers and their dependants. The Tillman Military Scholars program aids all veterans and specifically the ever-growing population of veterans and dependents of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.
The Pat Tillman Foundation was established to carry forward Pat’s legacy of leadership and civic action by supporting future generations of leaders who embody the American tradition of citizen service.
Pat’s Run is the signature annual fundraising event for the Pat Tillman Foundation. Created in 2004 following Pat’s death, the Foundation carries forward Pat’s legacy of leadership and civic action.
The 4.2 mile flat course tours through Tempe and ends in dramatic fashion on the 42-yard line of Sun Devil Stadium, honoring the number 42 jersey that Pat Tillman wore as an ASU Sun Devil. The starting line is on Packard Drive on the east side of the stadium. The finish line is on the 42-yard line of Sun Devil Stadium at Arizona State University.
