Patrick Tilley will be among the 13 participants supporting Catholic Charities who will run in the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon Nov. 7. He will run in support of the St. Nicholas Project, a Catholic Charities of New York Christmas season program that provides over a thousand New York families with warm winter essentials.
Patrick Tilley, a native of Franklin, Wis., has lived in New York for the past eight years. He is a music publicist for the Chicago-based Pitch Perfect PR.
Patrick attends Mass at both the Shrine Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Patrick began taking running seriously in 2019 and the 2021 New York City Marathon will be his first. When not running, Patrick enjoys reading, watching television and movies, spending time with friends and family, and rooting for the Milwaukee Bucks and Wisconsin Badgers football and basketball teams. He said he’s excited to run on behalf of Catholic Charities, humbled to partake in their important mission, and looks forward to helping the St. Nicholas Project. The Project provides food, clothing and counseling support to women and children in need throughout New York City.
