Stanford Rugby “Try For Others” at San Jose Charity Race

On Sunday March 11, 2012, Stanford Rugby participated in the San Jose 408K ‘Race To The Row’ benefitting the Pat Tillman Foundation.   In partnership with Try For Others (TFO), Stanford Rugby had over 100 club members represent Team TFO at the inaugural 8K race.

The event, which Stanford Rugby used as a fundraiser, raised nearly $15,000 to support their program and adopted charities. Through Team TFO, Stanford Rugby helped sponsor a field of disabled athletes to race alongside the team, including a number of injured military veterans.

“Try For Others was thrilled to have so many Stanford Rugby players represent Team TFO at the 408K,” said TFO Founder Dominic Cooke.  “Through their support, we were able to provide opportunities for challenged athletes to defy stereotypes and challenge their limitations.”

The sold-out race began at the HP Pavilion in downtown San Jose before finishing at the beautiful Santana Row. Stanford Head Coach, Matt Sherman, hopes his players will draw inspiration from the disabled athletes and Pat Tillman’s example.

“Stanford Rugby was honored to participate in the 408K benefitting the Pat Tillman Foundation,” related Sherman. “Pat sacrificed so much to pursue a mission much bigger than himself.  It was with this same mentality that Stanford Rugby came together to support his legacy and Team TFO.”
