Stanford Rugby “Try's For Others” in San Jose Charity Race

On Sunday March 11, 2012, Stanford Rugby will participate in the San Jose 408K ‘Race To The Row’ benefitting the Pat Tillman Foundation.   In partnership with Try For Others (TFO), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping critically injured athletes live a more active and independent lifestyle, Stanford Rugby will have both the men’s and women’s teams represent Team TFO at the inaugural 8K race.

The event, which Stanford Rugby is using as a fundraiser, has raised over $10,000 to support their program and adopted charities. TFO will be sponsoring a field of disabled athletes to race alongside the team, including a number of injured military veterans.
“Try For Others (TFO) is thrilled to have so many Stanford Rugby players represent Team TFO at the 408K,” said TFO Founder Dominic Cooke.  “Through their support, we are able to honor the legacy of Pat Tillman and provide opportunities for challenged athletes to defy stereotypes and challenge their limitations."

The sold-out race begins at the HP Pavillon in downtown San Jose before finishing at the beautiful Santana Row.  Those interested in supporting Stanford Rugby with their fundraising efforts can make donations at www.teamtfo.org
