20K expected for Tillman tribute run
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Organizers expect 20,000 runners for the fifth annual Pat's Run, which celebrates the life of Pat Tillman.
Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt and Cardinals players participate in last years Pat's Run in honor of Pat Tillman.
He was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004.
The 4.2-mile run starts Saturday near Sun Devil Stadium and ends on the 42-yard line.
The proceeds go to the Pat Tillman Foundation, which sponsors leadership programs including the Tillman Scholars program at Arizona State, the National Veterans Scholarship Fund and the Collegiate Fund for Social Action.
The event starter will be missing this year. Former Arizona State coach Bruce Snyder died Monday of cancer.
