Dr. Amy Jo Overlin served as the Medical Director for the 10th Anniversary of Pat’s Run. She headed a medical team of approximately 60 individuals comprised of local sports medicine physicians, certified athletic trainers, physical therapists, nurses, and medical students.
The Pat’s Run medical team also coordinated with emergency medical personal from both Tempe Fire and Southwest Ambulance to care for the 28,000 plus participants. Dr. Overlin was joined by two other TOCA medical providers, Dr. Kostas Economopoulos and Melinda Mabee, PA-C. Dr. Overlin has been a medical provider for Pat’s Run for the last 8 years and this is her third year as the medical director. When Dr. Overlin was asked why she continues to be part of Pat’s Run year after year she had this to say, “It is always a true honor and privilege to be a part of the Pat Tillman Run. The event in and of itself raises money to provide leadership scholarships to both military personal and their families as well as current ASU students. Yet, this event represents so much more than a race to raise money for scholarships. It seeps with patriotism, hope and a feeling of community. Every year I watch the wave of runners and walkers pass along the course I can’t help but be proud of the legacy that has become Pat Tillman and the countless lives he has inspired.“
