June is National Men’s Health Month
Fit Fathers Day is back on Father’s Day June 21, 2015: Empowering dads, role models, father figures, families & children!
WHO: The Fit Fathers Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that educates families on nutritional and fitness awareness. Fit Fathers provides recipes, family fitness activities, and health tips to inspire fathers to embrace healthier lifestyles. Fit Fathers hosts free Social Workouts and other events to help encourage fathers with life-enhancing solutions.
TAKE THE FIT FATHERS DAY PLEDGE: Childhood obesity is at an all-time high, while hypertension and other health risks are increased in men 20 years and older. This national campaign asks fathers to commit to specific healthy choices. It starts with dads on Father’s Day taking the pledge and following the simple steps to wellness. Exercise and healthy eating saves generations. Hosted by DC Capital Striders Running Group, participate in our 5K training in preparation of your Father’s Day activity of choice.
National Ambassador: Jason McCourty of the Tennessee Titans: Becoming a Fit Father has completely changed my life, everything I do I know my little princess will be watching. Staying fit and eating healthy will allow me to watch her grow into a beautiful, strong woman. It’s important to develop the habits “now” of a healthy lifestyle that will impact my entire family for decades to come. So make sure you take the Fit Fathers Day Pledge!
