In 2016, Marks was awarded the prestigious Pat Tillman Award For Service at the 2016 ESPYs. The Pat Tillman award was established in 2014 and is given to athletes who shows commitment to serving others, which commemorates Pat Tillman, the former NFL player and US Army Ranger.
"Sgt. Elizabeth Marks, this year's recipient, is an athlete of remarkable courage and perseverance who has made extraordinary sacrifices in her own life to help others and serve our country," Connor Schell, the former senior vice president of ESPN Films who previously oversaw The ESPYS, said in 2016. "She represents the best of our country and we are proud to present her with this award."
