National Ambassadors include Super Bowl Champion Kyle Arrington and Jason and Devin McCourty of the New England Patriots. The McCourty twins were recognized for their work on and off the field and named Walter Payton Man of the Year. “We have seen firsthand the devastating consequences of sickle cell on family members and chose to use our platform to help families in similar situations,” said Jason. Kyle stated that playing in the NFL means constant elevation with new training techniques, eating healthy and maintaining consistent, mental positivity. Also, rest is far too important and is typically excluded from people’s daily habits. But off the field Kyle is a family man who dedicates success to his wife and young sons. Together their teamwork is strong and focused.
5th Annual “Fit Fathers Day” Call To Duty
In memory of Youth Ambassador Journey Butler. The family manifested “Journey to Happiness” to raise societal awareness of the sickle cell trait (SCT). The nonprofit was founded in order to advocate for SCT carriers and educate the community on the urgent health concerns associated with being a carrier. SCT is also directly associated with Renal Medullary Carcinoma, the cancer that Journey succumbed to. The group will participate and continue to support Fit Fathers’ efforts to promote healthy lifestyles.
Thanking our partners for making the 2018 Fit Fathers Day Celebration a possibility!
