Five Girls Getting Fit2Father?
This post is from Brittany DeFrehn, NFI's Manager of Outreach.
Here at NFI Headquarters we are pounding the pavement
We are launching our Fit2Father campaign and gearing up for the Acumen Solutions Race for the Cause 8K
. Particularly, five of us at headquarters
have joined together to get ready for this race. You might be wondering why five girls, none of whom have children and all of whom come from different backgrounds, are so excited about working at the National Fatherhood Initiative and spreading the word about fatherhood.
The answer is simple. We realize fatherhood impacts so many aspects of our society. For those interested in education, children in father-absent homes can have lower school performance. For those concerned about hunger, children in homes without fathers are 36% more likely to be below the poverty line. And as for our national outlook, more involved fathers now means more children who become more involved fathers in the future, making an impact on future generations.
So, why wouldnt we care about fatherhood? Whether youre a dad, someone who works with dads, have a dad, never had a dad, are married to a dad, or you are just like us five girls who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of children
Make sure to spread the word about NFI and come out to the Fit2Father Walk
