On Father's Day engage in fun, energizing and life enhancing activities to set your lifestyle on positive paths.

“The task is to always keep attendees excited with new, refreshing ways to adopt our nutritional and fitness messages. We want them to lead by example so their child becomes the example,” said Kimatni D. Rawlins, founder and CEO of Fit Fathers.”

The 5th Annual “Fit Fathers Day” Celebration will take place nationally on a social level and culminate physically in Silver Spring, MD on Sunday, June 17. The free event is hosted by the Fit Fathers Foundation which encourages health and wellness habits through group exercises, energetic music, fitness games and informational health demonstrations.

“The task is to always keep attendees excited with new, refreshing ways to adopt our nutritional and fitness messages. We want them to lead by example so their child becomes the example,” said Kimatni D. Rawlins, founder and CEO of Fit Fathers.”

Fit Fathers asks the following commitment from dads:

  •     Take the FIT FATHERS DAY PLEDGE which offers dads simple but specific steps to begin crafting a healthier lifestyle. Dads are encouraged to post workout photos on their social media using the hashtags #FitFathersDay #FitFathers #MensHealthMonth and #FathersDay.
  •     On June 17 enjoy at least one hour of energetic activities with your family and friends such as a 5K run, family bike ride, hiking, ball games or a simple walk through the park with nature.
  •     Watch the Fit Fathers Day PSA, an inspiring video of dad spending time with his kids as they engage in sporting activities. The PSA also inspires parents to be nutritionally proactive with their children.
  •     After Fit Fathers Day dads should be inspired to motivate their family with daily exercise and education to replace chips, cookies and soda with fruits, water and homemade smoothies. They will also be empowered to cook more meals at home and avoid fast food.
