Pat Tillman fundraiser
On April 22, 2004, Pat Tillman was killed while serving with the 75th Ranger Regiment in Afghanistan. Tillman left his pro-football career with the Arizona Cardinals to join the service after 9-11. Initially, it has been reported that Tillman had been killed by enemy fire. But subsequent investigations determined his death was the result of friendly fire. The program supports active-duty service members, veterans and their spouses with academic scholarships, a national network, and professional development opportunities.
   Each year, the Pat Tillman Foundation Scholars program sponsors a 4.2 mile run/walk nationwide. The race this year took place in Falcon at the trailhead on April 27.
Participants finished the 4.2-mile race in honor of Pat Tillman near Farmer’s State Bank. Jak’s Brewing and Black Forest Brewing Co. provided bottled water to participants as well as a vendor for Arizona State University gear where Tillman attended.Donovan Routsis (left), race captain, and Scott Davis, local business owner and president of the Arizona State Alumni of Southern Colorado Club celebrated the 15th annual Pat Tillman race and the first-ever hosted in southern Colorado.
