National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) is pleased to announce a partnership with Acumen Solutions, the trusted leader in Enterprise Cloud Transformation and an avid supporter of community outreach initiatives, for its 6th Annual Acumen Solutions Race for a Cause™ 8k and 1-Mile Fun Run, which will take place in Arlington, VA, on Sunday, October 19, 2014, beginning at 8 a.m. There are a limited number of free registrations available.

The race is Acumen’s signature philanthropic event and was created to help raise proceeds for local nonprofit organizations in the greater DC Metro area.

This year, NFI is one of 10 nonprofit organizations to partner with Acumen Solutions for the race. This race offers participants the opportunity to “vote” for their preferred charity when registering. The more participants who choose NFI, the more of the race proceeds will go to NFI.
