NFI and Supporters Race to End Father Absence
This past Sunday, NFI participated in the Acumen Solutions Race for a Cause 8k as the culmination of our fit2father campaign, a six-week initiative designed to help fathers and their families live healthier lifestyles. Fathers and families from around the country took the fit2father pledge and the Acumen Solutions Race for a Cause allowed D.C. fit2father participants the opportunity to show their support for NFI and the issue of involved fatherhood!
From NFI staff and family, to local runners, and DC-area supporters, the NFI team had a strong presence. Daddy bloggers like Matt from DC Urban Dad
also joined the NFI team as we raced to end father absence.
Acumen Managing Director and NFI Board Member, Andy Schoka, connected NFI to this opportunity. This years Race for a Cause event was our best yet and Acumen Solutions is thrilled to have the NFI participate as one of our benefiting non-profit partners," said Shocka. "The 8K race was challenging and the 1 mile fun run was perfect for families and really aligns well with the NFIs fit2father message. Im incredibly thankful for the difference the NFI is making and Im pleased with the opportunity for Acumen Solutions to help contribute to the NFIs mission for years to come.
