Every year on the third Saturday in April, thousands of people gather in Tempe, Arizona (home of Arizona State University and, during Pat’s time with the team, the Arizona Cardinals) to run/walk a 4.2 mile race throughout Tempe, culminating on the 42 yard line of Sun Devil Stadium. The complete route is displayed below:
This year, there were 28000 registrants and approximately 10000 spectators and volunteers. The numbers 4.2 and 42 are used in homage of the uniform number Pat wore whilst playing for the Sun Devils.
A pub just on the other side of the Mill, Rula Bula, was one of Pat’s favourite hangouts during his time in Tempe. To this day, his own, personal pint glass sits at the bar. Rula Bula partners with the Tillman Foundation to bring Pint’s For Pat wherein people may go and purchase a Guinness pint glass for 10$ with all proceeds going to the Tillman Foundation. Additionally, there is also a silent auction to raise funds for the Tillman Foundation.
