March, 25, 2021 | HANOVER, MD
The company continues commitment to supporting active military, veterans and spouses
TEKsystems®, a provider of full-stack technology services that address the pressing strategy, implementation and talent needs for more than 80% of the Fortune 500, is proud to announce its continued sponsorship of the Pat Tillman Foundation’s 17th annual Pat’s Run, to be held virtually on Saturday, April 24, 2021. Funds raised from Pat’s Run support the Tillman Scholar program, the premier academic fellowship for veterans and their spouses, building a diverse community of leaders committed to serving others.
Held annually to honor Pat’s legacy, the 4.2-mile run/walk has historically wound through the streets of Tempe, Arizona, and finished at Sun Devil Stadium. Organizers, however, will honor Pat’s legacy virtually for the second year, encouraging participants to run 4.2 miles individually, wherever they are, and share their experiences with the hashtag #PatsRun and #TEKRunswithPat.
TEKsystems’ partnership with the Pat Tillman Foundation is part of the company’s larger commitment to supporting U.S. active military, veterans and spouses. Since 2013, the company has helped more than 19,000 servicemen and servicewomen in their career aspirations in a wide variety of technology-related fields, including the leadership of TEKsystems itself.
“At TEKsystems, we help veterans achieve their dreams through long-term career success, so they have the opportunity to continue serving after service,” says Jay Alvather, president of TEKsystems. “Our long-standing partnership with the Pat Tillman Foundation helps support Tillman Scholars as they work toward their dreams and impact communities around the world.”
Mike Powers, veterans and disabilities program manager for TEKsystems and a retired Army National Guard member and combat veteran, says, “The resiliency and dedication of our service veterans align with our core values at TEKsystems. As a veteran myself, I’m extremely proud to be a part of a company that actively supports those who have served.”
