Pat Tillman Foundation Marks 20-Year Milestone: TEKsystems Honored To Sponsor 20th Pat’s Run

March 26, 2024 | HANOVER, MD

As the largest fundraiser for Tillman Scholars, TEKsystems supports the Annual Pat’s Run to continue supporting military service members, veterans and spouses.

(HANOVER, Md., March 26, 2024 ) – TEKsystems, a global provider of technology, business and talent solutions for more than 80% of the Fortune 500, announced today their continued sponsorship of the Pat Tillman Foundation’s 20th Annual Pat’s Run, Saturday, April 13, 2024. Pat’s Run raises funds for the Tillman Scholars program, which supports military service members, veterans and spouses with scholarships, leadership development and a global community of high-performing peers.

TEKsystems’ nine-year partnership with the Pat Tillman Foundation is part of the company’s larger commitment to supporting military service members, veterans and spouses. Over the past several years, TEKsystems has helped nearly 20,000 servicemen and servicewomen pursue their career aspirations in a wide variety of technology-related fields. The Pat Tillman Foundation unites and empowers military service members, veterans and spouses as the next generation of public and private sector leaders committed to service beyond self.

“At TEKsystems, we want to ensure the legacy of Pat Tillman lives on by supporting the Pat Tillman Foundation and helping those who served in their career success beyond the military,” said Mark Collins, president at TEKsystems. “Each year, we’re honored to sponsor Pat’s Run. Each day, we’re proud to exemplify our core value of serving others, a value embodied by Pat Tillman.”

Pat’s Run honors the legacy of Pat Tillman and remains the signature fundraiser for Tillman Scholars. Participants will run 4.2 miles through the streets of Tempe, Arizona—finishing on the 42-yard line of Sun Devil Stadium at Arizona State University. In addition to the main event, younger participants can run or walk in the 0.42-mile Kids Run. For those who can’t attend in person, runners and supporters can participate virtually or celebrate Pat’s legacy by running in their local communities across the country in Tillman Honor Runs with the foundation’s partners at Arizona State University and their alumni.

“We are looking forward for more than 20,000 people to come together for this year’s Pat’s Run, whether it’s to the streets of Tempe this April, participating virtually or via a Tillman Honor Run,” said Dr. Katherine Steele, CEO of the Pat Tillman Foundation and 2014 Tillman Scholar. “It’s a collective way for us to honor Pat’s legacy. We value TEKsystems’ continued partnership with Pat’s Run that directly helps support our nearly 900 Tillman Scholars to continue to reach their full potential as the next generation of leaders.”

Meg Cortezi, senior vice president of sales at TEKsystems and member of the Pat Tillman Foundation board of directors, said, “Honoring 20 years of Pat’s Run is an incredible achievement for those who cofounded the race, the foundation and all of their longtime supporters. We’re grateful for the sacrifices made by our military community, and we’re inspired by the work of our Tillman Scholars, a growing network of leaders making an impact and dedicated to service beyond self.”
