The Phoenix Zoo features around 1,400 animals, including lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!), plus giraffes, monkeys, and rhinos. It also holds occasional “roars and pours” happy hours and the annual holiday bonanza ZooLights.
Pat Tillman is a local and national hero. The ASU and later Arizona Cardinals football player left his successful NFL career to join the Army, and died in Afghanistan in 2004. Pat’s Run is held every April in his honor to raise money for scholarships for military members, veterans, and their spouses.
