Photos: Thousands Turn Out For 10th Annual Pat's Run At Arizona State In Honor Of Pat Tillman

Shortly after he was killed in Afghanistan, a victim of friendly fire, Marie Tillman started a charity foundation in her husband's honor. That was 10 years ago. Today, more than 30,000 people will run for Pat Tillman, the former NFL player turned Army Ranger, who died serving his country. 

The event, Pat's Run, held in Tempe, Ariz., where Pat Tillman played in college football, helps fund a scholarship foundation that over the past decade has put 290 veterans or their spouses through school. 

Photos from the run speak to the effect the former Sun Devil had on his community, and his country.
