Father’s Day in the Maryland, DC and Virginia area was elevated by Fit Fathers for the 6th consecutive year with exercise, laughter, dance, music and fun. We bring dads and father figures together to demonstrate the importance of being health conscious and leading by example through positive, nutritional choices.

Hype for the event was built from engaging social media campaigns and coverage from our media partners at Radio One, Fox 5 DC, News Channel 8, WUSA 9 and a host of media outlets. Additionally, with $2,500 in prizes at stake for our fitness challenges, over 500 attendees came to the celebration ready for action which resulted in an eventful morning.
