Be a part of a team with a purpose.

Pat never stopped pushing the limits as an athlete.

Told he was too small to ever play football, he defied skeptics, first as an All-American ASU Sun Devil and then, as a record-breaking safety for the Arizona Cardinals. Even in the off-season, he never quit challenging himself at marathons and half-Ironman triathlons nationwide.

Today, Team Tillman is keeping Pat’s passion and intensity alive while inspiring others to live up to their potential. A community of everyday athletes, civilian and military, we participate as a team or individually in marathons, half-marathons, triathlons, cycling and other athletic events to honor Pat. To date, we have raised nearly $1 million to fund scholarships for Tillman Scholars, who share Pat’s commitment to service, learning and action.

If you’re looking for a challenge as a seasoned athlete, weekend warrior or new runner, take a moment to explore some of our Team Tillman events. Each race is guaranteed to both motivate and inspire you—and your commitment will help us keep Pat’s legacy alive for years to come. Register now to join Team Tillman and participate in one of our events.

Meet Team Captain: Lyndsey Anderson

Army National Guard Sergeant and Iraq War veteran, Lyndsey Anderson, was a member of the first class of Tillman Scholars selected in 2009, and has proven to be a model representative of the Pat Tillman Foundation ever since. Already equipped with a Masters of Museum Studies from New York University, Lyndsey went on to achieve her M.S. Ed from Bank Street College of Education. Lyndsey has worked in a variety of New York City museums specializing in developing and facilitating programs and services to ensure cultural institutions are accessible to everyone.

In 2016, Lyndsey leveraged her passion for service and her commitment to providing equitable access to culture and education, and transitioned into her current role as Volunteer Manager at America Needs You (ANY). ANY is a nonprofit that fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first-generation college students by providing transformative mentorship and intensive career development for our Fellows over two years.

A natural leader who is consistently on the lookout for her next greatest challenge, Lyndsey has set her sights on finishing her first marathon when she runs the TCS New York City Marathon on Nov. 5, 2017.

“I message to our students that the ability to achieve one’s ambitions are limitless with the proper commitment, integrity, and resources, which is what inspired me to prove this to myself and my students by stepping up to this challenge.”

If that wasn’t enough, her passion for the Foundation’s mission and fearless attitude has even led her to a leadership role, as she will serve as team captain for Team Tillman NYC.

“As a member of the Tillman Scholar community, I am constantly inspired to do more than ‘good’ for my community. I want to do great, and I try to do this by pushing myself in new ways every day. I couldn’t be more proud to wear the Team Tillman “T” while running to support an organization that does so much great for so many people.”
